Cold Storage building, formerly occupied by Swift * Co., on Lake Avenut 
Already iced. Also Commission house. 

Minneapolis, Oct. 22. — The two houses 
of the Episcopalian convention met in 
joint session this afternoon at the final 
act of a very busy three weeks' session. 
The pastoral letter, prepared by the 
bishops, was read by Bishop Llttlejohn, 
of Long Island. The document Is ad- 
dressed to the clergy and laity of the 
church, and Is quite lengthy. The 
bishops refer to the successful delibera- 
tions of the convention. To the pro- 
gress of the work In revising the con- 
stitutions and canons and to the need 
of more systematic and general con- 
tributions for the work of the church. 

A paragraph is devoted to the heroic 

self-sacrifice of the missionaries In 

China and to a justification of the 
churches policy in keeping them there 
and sending more to Join them In the 
work. The fact that four new dioceses 
and two new missionary jurisdictions 
have been created. Is pointed to as 
an evidence of the healthy growth of 
the church at home. 

In discussing church unity, the 
bishops are not hopeful of immediate 
or general results In the spreading of 
the sentiment for unity throughout 
Christendom. The bishops complain 
that while the theological schools are 
turning out many graduates, and can- 
didates for orders are about as numer- 
ous as ever, there Is a lack of self- 
sacrificing men willing to spread the 
faith in foreign and heathen lands. 
The progress of the work among the 
Afro-Americans is noted and Its needs 
pointed out. The woes of the sister 
church In Armenia are sympathized 
with. The spirit of unrest In the land 
Is commented on and the remedy for It 
Is declared to be accessible in the 
church. , 

Fully a third of the letter is devoted 
to a dlscu.-sslon of certain tendencies in 
the church toward ritualism, and on 
the other hand to too great liberty. 
Unauthorized methods of celebrating 
communion are severely rebuked and 
the letter makes this significant state- 
ment: "We are Indeed between two 
perilous tendencies. On the one hand 
there Is a demand for concessions 
which will make it easy for members 
of Christian bodies, not in communion 
with the church, to enter her ministry, 
to transfer themselves bodily as congre- 
gations, with faint and feeble guards 
of soundness in their forms of worship. 

"On the other hand there is a plea 
put forth by some to enter Into negotia- 
tions with the bishop of Rome with a 
view to reunion which is now known 
to he possible only by absolute sub- 
mission to his unscriptural and unlaw- 
ful demands. The wise thing for us 
to do is to hold fast to our position."

He Makes the Proposed Escape 
Story Public. 

Minneapolis, Oct. 22.— Harry Hayward, 
the condemned murderer, issued today a 
formal statement to the public of some 
4000 words, explaining the recently ex- 
posed plan to break jail. He admits that 

there was such a plot,. and describes it I 

in detail. He maintains stoutly, how- ' cas, as Is evident from the fact that 


Washington, Oct.; 22.— Great Britain's 
radical steps In the Venezuelan ques- 
tion continue to excite the liveliest in- 
terest in oflicial and diplomatic circles. 
The demand has not yet reached Cara- 

ever, that the whole thing was engineered 
by Deputy Sheriff Klerce for the purpose 
of making money and making himself 
solid with the authorities. 

He says that all his dealing were with 
Klerce, who obtained the false keys to 
the cells and jail doors and outlined the 
whole plan to him. He admits that he 
bit "like a sucker," but shows Klerce in 
a very unfavorable light.

Clough Bros, consist^ of David M. 
Clough personally, and as administrator 
for the estate of Gilbert Clough. 

The firm was in the lumber business. 
Clough Bros, were caught for $92,000 by 
the N. P. Clarke failure. No Informa- 
tion can be had today as to the relative 
size of the liabilities and assets.

The Episcopal Convention Very 
Near Its Close. 

Minneapolis, Oct. 22.— At the opening 
of the closing session of the house of 
deputies of the Episcopalian conven- 
tion this morning Rev. Dr. Elliott, of 
Washington, gave assurances of the 
welcome that would be accorded the 
next convention by the new diocese, 
although he admitted that Minnesota 
has been hospitable beyond comparison. 
The doctors half humorous remark was 
well received as an invitation after, 
rather than before the acceptance of 
the convention. 

The of deputies concurred with 
the bishops in erecting the missionary 
jurisdiction of Northern Texas Into a 


Two Important Suits Brought 
Concerning Them. 

St. Paul, Oct. 22.— Tht fl&h and game 
commission of Minnesota is to be brought 
to book in anticipation of the venison 
season. This afternoon the papers in 
two suits for injunction were served by 
Akers and Wimans, attorneys for the 

plaintiffs, and the two suits will be tried 
as one case. The complainants against 
i..e fish and game commission are R. E. 
Cobb and F. L. I'arshall, two commission 
men, the former of whom has come into 
collision frequently with the game au- 

The complaints state, first that the sea- 
son for the killing of deer will open Nov. 
1, and that between that time and Nov. 
2;"! it is likely that a great many venison 
carcasses will be shipped from points in 
Minnesota to the complainants. They 
hold that all these deer will have been 
kllli'd in the usual way and not more 
thiiii five by any one man as set forth in 
the game law. They finally sot forth that 
the fish and game commission has an- 
nounced that it will i^eize and confiscate 
all such carcasses without process of 
law. This, the complainants state, would 
inhibit the s-hipment of carcasses by the 
clients of the plaintiffs and result in great 
loss of profit, wherefore they petition for 
an injunction restraining the fish and 
game commission from taking such ac- 
tion. A similar cause of action is stated 
in connection with the report of deer 
killed in other states and territories, and 
shipped to St. Paul to the plaintiffs. Thiy 
matter will be argued Saturday at the 
special term of court, and an effort will 
be made to get an early decision. The 
principal object of these two suits is to 
test the constitutionality of a portion of 
the game laws. 


Cassius M. Clay Will Repudi- 
ate Hardin. 

Loui-sville, Ky., Oct. 22.— Hon. Cassius 
M. Clay, Jr.. of Paris, Ky.. in the race 
for the nomination of governor, who 
was defeated in the convention by a 

sible for the suspension, 
amount to about $31,000.

Chicago. Oct. 22.— Through an injunc- 
tion issued today by the circuit court th«' 
fight between the Illinois and Canadian 
Order of Foresters is again brought into 
prominence. The Injunction provides 
among other things that the Canadian 
court shall not hold a meeting set for to- 
day at Joliet. The fight is between thf 
, ,^ , . J , , .. i high courts of the two orders. The slni- 

small majority, is out today in a letter , narity of name, and the confusion aria 

to the Democratic campaign committee, 
refusing to speak in behalf of Hardin, 
the free silver candidate, on a sound 
money platform. He charges Hardin 
' with repudiating the Democratic con- 
vention'.s platform, and will not vote for 

He states in his letter that a 
change in the control of affairs at Frank- 
fort and the abolition of the state house 
ring would be of great benefit to the 
state. The card is not bitter in tone, 
but is the plain statement of a .sound 
money candidate who objects to the 
repudiation of the sound money platform 
by a free silver candidate. 

Wellington. Kan., Oct. 22— The First 
National bank of this city closed its 
doors today by order of the directors. 
Thp bank lias been doing bu.siness since 
1S82 with a capital stock of $50,000. A 
gradual shrinkage of business is respon- 

ing thPTefrom is one of the chief points of 
the controversy. 


Christian Church Conference 
Criticised Many Things. 

Chicago. Oct. 22.— The methods of 
the Woman's Christian Temperance 
Union, the church as an Institution, 
the clergy as representing the church, 
and all political parties' as' they exist 
at the present time, were roundly 
criticised at the national conference of 
I Christians which opened today in the 
I Christian Federation church. Rev. M. 
H. Guy, the national minister of the 
church, of the open Bible, acted as 

The principal speaker was W. J. 
Wells, who holds a similar office with 
relation to the Christian Federation 
church. The purpose of the conference 
Is outlined by the speakers Is the put- 
ting down of the liquor trafllc, and the 
churches and W. C. T. U. wore roundly 
scored, because of their alleged lack of 
interest in todays gathering. 


Richmond, Va., Oct. 22.— The annual 
meeting of the stockholders of the Ches- 
apeake & Ohio railroad was held here to- 
day. The only business the stockhold- 
ers transacted was the election of M. E. 
Ingalls, W. P. Anderson, of Rhode 
Island; C. M. Depew, C. H. Coster. 
George T. Bliss. Charles D. Dickey. Jr.. 
and Samuel Spencer, of New York, and 
Decatur Axell, of Richmond, as directors 
of the company. 


Minneapolis, Oct. 22. — A special to the 
Journal from Madison. Minn., states that 
forty buildings, chiefly business houses, 
were burned there this morning. Tiie 
loas is $150,000; insurance about $45,000. 
Only two brick buildinss saved the rest 
of the town. 

Lexington, Ky., Oct. 22.— Rev. George 
Mills, a Salvationist preacher, fatally 
shot Charles Clemens, a young farmer, 
near Chalbeate Springs. On Sunday 
Clemens accompanied the daughter of 
Rev. Mills to church. Mills took his 
daughter away from Clemens. W^hen 
he met the latter in the highway yes- 
terday, he emptied his gun into Cle- 
mens. Mills was arrested. 

New York, Oct. 22.— Ex-President Har- 
rison left for the West today. Before 
taking his departure he said to a re- 
porter: "While here I have seen none 
of the statesmen except Mr. Piatt, Sen- 
ator Carter and Gen. Clarkson, and I 
met them In the dining room of the hotel. 
I have absolutely nothing of public in- 
terest to say now. I may be back in 
the city again In November." 


Whi'tesburg, Ky., Oct. 22.— Reports 
have Just reached here from Knott 
county, stx miles from the Magoffin 
county lirie, near the little hamlet of 
Vest, that Andy Jack, a young moun- 
tain outlaw, was shot in the head and 
mortally wounded by Jimes Hale, an- 
other outlaw, the result of a drunken 
brawl. The report says that another 
man, name unknown, ^vas shot In the 
melee from ambush by unknown parties. 
Neither of the men can survive. Hale 
has been arrested. 


Memphis, Oct. 22.— A. K. Ward, the 
absconding manager an* treasurer of 
the Memphis Barrel and Heading com- 
pany, has been indicted for forgery. 
Ward is now thought to b( in Honduras. 

Hong Kong. Oct. 22.— The Blackflag 
chieftain, who has been holding Tal Wan 
Fu, the Chinese capital ol the Island of 
Formosa, against the Japanese, has fled, 
and It is expected that his followers will 
now lay down their arms. The Japanese 
will probably occupy Auping today. 

Milwaukee, Oct. '22.— A special to the 
Wisconsin from Kewaunie. Wis., says, 
the fire which threatened the city last 
night was confined to Selk's hay pres.s 
and a f^w minor structu-es. The loss 
was very light. 

Minister Indrade has not heard from 
his government. President Crespo, who 
has been absent from the capital, has 
started back, for the purpose. It Is be- 
lieved, of filling the four vacancies in 
his cabinet which occurred recently. 

One of these new officers is the minis- 
ter of foreign affairs. There is no 
doubt entertained here that Crespo's 
new minister will share the views of 
his predecessors, as no ministry or 
administration could survive in Vene- 
zuela which did not make resistance to 
British aggression its foremost policy. 
Some of the latest reports from Lon- 
don cause criticising comments among 
officials here. One of these statements 
Is attributed to Ambassador Bayard 
that the declaration that the Uruan 
incident is Independent of the boundary- 
question, and that the United States 
can take no part in the former incident. 
It is pointed out here, that the two 
questions are inseparably connected. 
The Uruan incident Is based on a 
claim that the Venezuelans arrested 
Sergeant Beherns of the British con- 
stabulary on British soil, and that this 
indignity must be repaired. The Vene- 
zuelans claimed that it occurred on 
Venezuelan soil. 

The gravity of the case depends on 
the ownership of the territory where 
the trouble took place. It is therefore 
considered to Involve the entire terri- 
torial question, althoug'n It is a spe- 
cific incident arising In the disputed 
territory. In Venezuela's answer to 
the first demand for reparation on this 
incident Minister Rojas said that the 
reparation was refused because it 
would be a surrender of all the claims 
Venezuela ever had made. 

As it becomes more and more evident 
that the British government is more 
and more disposed to make it appear 
that the Uruan Incident is a parallel 
to the Corinto affair and may, there- 
fore, be treated in the same fashion 
without leading to the intervention of 
the United States, officials here are 
pointing out essential points of differ- 
ence in the two incidents and Mr. Bay- 
ard will doubtless be Instructed to em- 
phasize these In his further represen- 
tations on the subject to the British 
foreign ofTice. 

In the first case. Great Britain de- 
manded and obtained an indemnity 
from Nicaragua on the ground that 
her national honor had been outraged 
by the summary expulsion of her repre- 
sentative, although the latter was only 
an humble consular agent. The United 
States consented to stand aloof on this 
occasion, on the theory that a nation 
had a right to redress. But in t^e 
Uruan affair it cannot be maintained 
for an instant that the British govern- 
ment had a right to demand redress, 
for the arrest of Its officials, unless It 
shall be first established that they were 
in British territory, and thus the whole 
issue is raised as a preliminary ques- 

If the British officers were in British 
territory, then Venezuela must apolo- 
gize and make any further reasonable 
reparation, but before she can be right- 
fully expected to do this, that fact must 
be clearly shown, and nothing but an 
agreement, amicable or enforced, upon 
the exact location of the boundary line, 
can settle this point. Therefore 
the attempt to shift the Issue, 
involving as it does, a prejudgment of 
the rights of Great Britain to territory' 
claimed by Venezuela, is not likely to 
secure the countenance of our state 

Course of the Presidential 
Party Southward. 

Danville, Va., Oct. 22.— The special 
train containing the cabinet and presi- 
dent, passed through here at 4:55 a. m. 
The president and all his party were 
asleep and so were most of the citizens 
of Danville, hence there were no Inci- 
dents connected with the stop here. 

Greensboro, N. C, Oct. 22.— The presi- 
dential special train passed through 
here enroute to Atlanta before 7 o'clock 
this morning. A crowd had assembled at 
the Southern railway depot and were 
disappointed at not getting a of 
the president. It was thought by some 
that the party would leave the main line 
here and go down to Raleigh where the 
state fair opens today, but such was not 
the case. The train continued on the 
regular Washington-Atlanta route. The 
president missed a warm reception here 
by not being an early rijer. 

Charlotte, N. C, Oct. 22.— The presi- 
dential party reached this city at 9:25 
this morning. The train stopped here 
twenty minutes, and the president and 
his party shook hands with a part of the 
large crowd that had gathered to see 
him. He stood on the steps of the rear 
car with a boquet of roses In one hand, 
and seemed much pleased with his recep- 
tion. There were more than 4000 people 
at the station, and about 1200 school 
children marched past him in line, many 
of them shaking his hand. The Hornets 
Nest rifles. Queen City guards and naval 
reserves also turned out. A round of 
applause went up as the train pulled on 
Its way to Atlanta. 

Spartansburg, S. C, Oct. 22.— The 
president's train reached here at 11:45 a. 
m. A crowd of 6000 people, including 
students of Converse and Pofford col- 
leges, were at the depot to greet him. 
Court adjourned in honor of the occasion. 
The president appeared on the rear plat- 
form and shook hands with hundreds of 
people, and bowed his acknowledgment 
to the ladles. The train stopped ten 
minutes and the president was continu- 
ally cheered during its stay.

Scheme For a Corbett and 
Fitzsimmons Go. 

Hot Springs, Ark., Oct. 22.— The fight 
situation here has assumed a somewhat 
brighter phase, and itmay. develop that 
Corbett and Fitzsimmons will meet. 
Stuart and Vendig now state in view 
of Fitzsimmons' arbitrary stand the 
contract between the club and the fight- 
ers in so far as it relates to Fitzsimmons 
is abrogated. The club stands now 
ready to offer a new contract w^hich 
comprehends a modification of the 
purse offered, say $25,000 at the most 
and the fixing of the date of the battle 
two or three weeks later than the orig- 
inal date. Vendig and Stuart are a unit 
on this point. 

Vendig this morning got a telegram 
from J. J. Quinn, Maher's backer, offer- 
ing to bet $5000 on the Irishman, if the 
match between Corbett and Maher 
could be made. Julian is still here and. 
has till noon to make another applica- 
tion for a purse.

El Paso, Texas. Oct. 22.— A telegram

refused to enter into a pillow throwing 
contest at Hot Springs, because he had 
assurance that a fight to a finish could 
be brought off at El Paso.

Paris, Oct. 22.— The budget committee 
today rejected all tho credits asked by 
Admiral Besnard, the minister of marine, 
on Oct. IH, to carry out the naval pro- 
gram for 1894. 18!»5 and IS.%, and which 
involved an annual expenditure of $15.-

New York, Oct. 22.— An important 
action affecting" the seal fisheries ques- 
tion has been begun in the United 
States circuit court in this city by the 
United States government against the 
North American Commercial company. 
The case was called before Judge La- 
combe, but a postponement was taken 
It is alleged on behalf of the United 
States that the North American Com- 
mercial company, the lessors of the seal- 
ing rights on the coast of Alaska, are in 
default to the amount of $214,298 for 
rentals, taxes and bounties due the gov- 
ernment since April 1, 1895. 


Little Ropk, Ark.. Oct. 22.— The su- 
preme court was filled with lawyers and 
prominent citizens this morning when 
the hearing of the Corbett case was 
called. Arguments were made by Attor- 
ney General Kinsworth, County Attor- 
ney Murphy and Judge Hemingw^ay for 
the state, and by W. H. Martin for the 
club. The constitutionality of the law 
of 1891, making prize fighting a felony, 
was gone over; the question whether a 
prize fight is an assault, and the senti- 
mental side of the cases were argued. 
Judge Hemingway asked that Corbett 
be held in arrest till the matter be de- 
cided. Court adjourned until tomor- 


Hot Springs, Ark., Oct. 22.— Martin 
Julian, manager and backer of Fitzsim- 
mons, has made a statement to the pub- 
lic of which the following is the im-

to carry out to the letter every word 
contained in the articles to which he 
signed his name. He wants to fight 
Corbett; he wants to fight for the purse 
offered by the Florida Athletic club and 
the stake of $10,000 a side. 

"If the club is unwilling or unable to 
carry out its part of the compact in so 
far as the purse is concerned, then 
Robert Fitzsimmons will, on Oct. 31. 
take James J. Corbett to any part of the 
globe within reach of both men. and 
there he will fight him to a finish for 
the $10,000 a side stake, each man to 
select six men, and these only to be pres- 
ent at the fight. I do not care to mince 
matters. I simply want to state, and 
state it strong, tha.t if James J. Cor- 
bett and Robert Fitzsimmons do not 
meet and fight on Oct. 31. it will be by 
reason of no fault of Fltz's."

Was Gone Through With 


Dr. Charles 

C. Everett, of Harvard, opened the day's 

pro>.eedings. and Commissioner of Labor, 
Carroll D. Wright, followed in an ad- 
dress of welcome. 

The following telegram of regret was 
sent to the Rev. Edward Everett Hale, 
of Roxbury. Mass.; "The national con- 
ference sends affectionate greeting in 
memory of his many distinguished ser- 
vices and with tender sympathy for the 
anxieties and sorrows which deprive the 
conference of his presence and fellow- 

After some routine business, the Rev. 
George Batcheller, chairman of the coun- 
cil of the national conference and secre- 
tary of the Unitarian association, read 
an address. 

"The first fact which confronts us is 
a demand for more and better organiza- 
tion. The ears of this conference are al- 
ways open to that cry. For out of such a 
demand, made thirty years ago, this con- 
fession came. Since that event the fol- 
lowing things have happened: One hun- 
dred and lifty churches have been organ- 
ized. All the local conferences have 
been f«.irmed — the Maine. New Hamp- 
shire and Western. The ministers insti- 
tute was created by act of your commit- 
tee. The woman's alliance has come into 
existence and become a national organi- 
zation. Unitarian clubs have sprung up 
and hare revealed a new possibility in 
the organization of men. Unity clubs, 
religious guilds and lend-a-hand clubs 
have been multiplied throughout the 

"The Sunday school societies. East and 
West, have enlarged their work and I 
greatly improved the ciuality of publi- 
cations. The ladies' commission on Sun- ] 
day school books has sifted literature for 
our children with signal success. The 
Unitarian society, which three years ago 
was a private corporation, has been 
made a national organization. We have 
three sources of supply— the unsectarian 
divinity school of Harvard university, 
the Unitarian theological school at 
Meadville and the ministry of other de- 

"One of the inconvenient results of our 
progress is that the change in other 
churches takes effect with the ministr>- 
before it does with the laity. The result 
is an increasing demand for admission 
to our ministry and work under our aus- 
pices. Under these circumstances we 
.say to the faculties of our schools that 
the Unitarian church requires not many 
graduates so much as graduates of a 
higher order. It has been the good for- 
tune of our church to produce men and 
women who could contribute to the lit- 
erature of the world. It has been our 
good fortune to stand so near the com- 
mon life of man that the humane litera- 
ture has served our purpose. 

"It has been our aim, and is still our 
desire, to produce denominational litera- 
ture which may serve our immediate 
purpose for special reasons, but which 
shall be of such a quality as to escape 
d€'nominational uses and become the 
common property of the world, A new 
sen.«e of the need of unity pervades the 
religious life of the world. Among the 
many indications which might be cited 
are the Lambeth proposals, the Grindf'- 
wald conferences, the letter of Leu XIII 
inviting the Protestant world to return 
to the Roman church. 
•Thfs:' are notable, but nearer to us 

are the liberal congresses at Chicago 
May. the one at Toronto in July and 
numerous meetings of ministers of dif- 
ferent denominations, such as those at 
Aver and Cape Cod. Mass. With the 
purpose of these meetings your represen- 
tatives are most heartily in sympathy. 
But they hold that to succeed, all such 
plans must look toward a voluntary co- 
operation of churches and individuals 
who are prepared for union. There can 
be no union under compulsion. The last 
thirty vears have given us a relation of 
the laws of religious progivss as notable 
as that which marked any religious 
epoch in the history of the world. 

"The application of the law of evolu- 
tion - to the institutions of society re- 
moved many an obstacle to faith. Re- 
ligion is now seen to be monotony on the 
most important products of evolution, 
but also a constant working in the 
progress of civilization. Thirty years 
ago, when this conference was organized, 
for example, many believed that the 
church universal was but the creation of 
the hopes, the fears, the fancies and the 
desperate longings of the human heart, 
projected upon a background of such 
mists and vapors as ignorance, super- 
stition, credulity and priest-craft. 

"Before the light of science we knew 
that the vapors would melt and vanish, 
and we feared that even these .solemn 
temples dissolving in the clear of knowl- 
edge would leave not a rack behind. 
The vapors of ignorance, superstition, 
credulity and priest-craft grew thin, 
then melted away: then, and as the 
pas^eant faded, they rewarded the eye of 
faith with tlv.* most glorious sight that 
,'Ver dawned upon the soul of man. Re- 
ligi->n abides and grows and the chunh 
universal in all its changing forms is 
its growing body. 

"This conference has come to the place 
and time when it in spiritual things a-^- 
serts itself with power. When we pa.'^.-^ 
our superficial and technical difference.- 
we find ourselves heartily agreeing as t.> 
our church and our work. Just as we 
l.elieve in the attraction of gravitation, 
in the revolution of the earth upon its 
•axis in its motion round the sun. in 
heat, light and electricity, as modes of 
motion in matter, so also we believe and 
trust and stake our spiritual welfare 
upon our belief in the realities of the 
spiritual life. 

"Believing these things, is it not pos- 
sible for us to lay aside the sins that so 
easily beset us, private creeil-making 
and mutual criticism, and join with one 
heart and one voice to say these things 
and then to do the works which shall 
manifest them with power?"

Baltimore. Oct. 22.— Frances Wil- 
lard was again elected president of the 
W. C. T. U. at the annual election today 
with practically no opposition, although 
complimentary votes were cast for sev- 
eral other prominent workers. Other 
officers were elected as follows: Vice 
president at large, Mrs. L. M. N. 
Stevens: corresponding .secretary, Mrs. 
Katherine Lente Stevenson; recording 
secretary, Mrs. Clara C. Hoffman, of 
Kansas City; assistant recording secre- 
tary, Mrs. Frances J. Beachamp, of Ken-

The day's proceedings were opened 
with devotional exercises conducted by 
Miss Elizabeth Wood. The venerable 
Mother Thompson, the original temper- 
ance crusader, offered a prayer. 

The report of the committee on cre- 
dentials showed that forty-three states 
were represented and that 425 persons 
were present and entitled to vote. The 
vote for president resulted: Miss Wil- 
lard. 361; Mrs. Louise Rounds. Illinois, 
9; Mrs. Forbes, Mrs. Buell. Miss Acker- 
man and Mrs. HolTman, 1 each. 

At the conclusion of the ballot the 
vice president, Mrs, Stevens, took the 
chair, and the recording secretary was 
instructed to cast the unanimous vote 
of the convention for Miss Willard. The 
latter made a brief and feeling address, 
thanking the convention for the honor, 
and referring to the long and pleasant 
period of association between herself and 
the members of the W. C. T. U. She 
also spoke of her recent ill health and the 
great benefits derived from her trip 
abroad. The balloting for other officers

Some folks overwork their kidneys. 
They have to suffer the consequences. 
Hut the consequences would not be 
so bad if they would take Dr. Hobb's 
Sparagus Kidney Pills. 

The kidneys get overworked from 
worry, hard work of the body or mind, 
excesses, overeating, etc. 

Worry is probably the most common 
of these causes. 

Overwork of the kidneys makes them 
sick, and they make us sick. 

When the kidneys are sick the blood 
suffers. It gets poor, thin, unhealthy, 

When our kidneys are sick we may 
have Bright's disease, diabetes, nephri- 
tis and other dangerous kidney troubles. 
Or we may have rhoumatlsm, gout, 
neuralgia, general muscular weakness, 
etc.; or anaemia, pale and sallow com- 
plexion, chlorosis or green sickness, 
dizziness, etc.; or skin diseases, pim- 
ples, blotches, eruptions, etc. 

It may seem wonderful that one medi- 
cine should be able to cure all these dis- 
eases, but when we remember that they 
are all caused by impure blood, and 
that the Impure blood Is caused by the 
kidney.s, it becomes a question of sim- 
I>le common sense. 
The kidneys make pure blood. 
Pure blood" makes health. 
Therefore, when you have diseases of 
impure blood, cure your kidneys with 
Dr. Hobb's Sparagus Kidney FMlls. 

This will make you well and strong 
and hearty. 

Dr. Hobb's Spar.agus Kidney pills 
contain, in concentrated form, special 
vegetable drugs which cure and renew 
the kidneys. 

The combination from which they arc 
made is found in no other medicine or 
prescription. It was first used by Dr. 
ilobb in his private practice many year.s 
ago, and was s > unfailingly successful 
that his original prescription was final- 
ly made ui> into Dr. Hobb's Sparagus 
Kidney Pills. The concentrated extract 
of .\spa!-aRns. which is the jn-lncipal 
Ingredient, is prepared exclusively by 
the Hobb's Medicine company, under 
a special process. 

Dr. Hobb's Sparagus Kidney Pills 
will cure you when you are sick. 

They will put new blood and new life 
into you. They will give you new am- 
bition, new looks and new brightness 
of eyes and skin. 

A few doses will relieve. A few boxes 
will cure.

St. James Gazette Apparently 
Has an Inside Track. 

Grand Rapids, Minn.. Oct. 22.— Alonzo 
J. Fennlmore, a woodsman, aged 35, was 
killed at Split Hand, twelve miles dis- 
tant, on Friday night by a hunter named 
Harrison C. Dodd. It Is claimed the 
deed was committed In self-defense. The 
tragedy occurred at Dodd's home. Both 
men were under the influence of liquor 
and had been drinking heavily until they 
were half crazed. Fennlmore came at 
Dodd with a huge knife and told him he 
must die. Dodd asked time to pray and 
Fennlmore put up the knife. In an in- 
stant Dodd reached up for a hammer, 
which was hanging on two nails on the 
wall, and as Fennlmore rushed at him 
struck him on the top of the head. Fen- 
nlmore fell to the floor, when Dodd 
struck him with the hammer twice more, 
pounding out his brains. 

Dodd and his wife were arrested, and 
an inquest was held, the jliiy returning 
a verdict that Fennlmore came to hi.s 
death from blows inflicted by Dodd with 
a hammer. Dodd's prelltnlnary exami- 
nation Is being held today. He is about 
4.1 years old and has always had a good 
reputation. Fennimore was regarded as 
a tough character and is said to have 
killed a man several years ago. About 
three years ago he paid a Frenchman $2 
and armed him with a huge knife to kill 
T. H. Hennessey, cngineci ot the city 
hall. Hennessey was warned In time and 
the Frenchman disarmed. 


The Famous Nonpareil is Near

Portland, Ore.. Oct. 22.— Jack Demp- 
sey is dying. Within the past few days 
he has rapidly been sinking.and It Is an-

He has tired a change to country air, 
but with little apparent benefit. His 
physicians allow few of the pugilist's 
friends to see him. 

Dempsey realizes his condition and 
says It Is due to the blow he received 
at the hands of Fltzsimmons four years 
ago, but his friends say It is consump- 
tion. Since his return to his home her:!

London, Oct. 22.— The afternoon news- 
papers of this city today again com- 
ment upon the dispute between Great

tone as yesterday. The St. James Ga-

opposed to arbitration in any form say- 
ing: 'Arbitration not only does not 
apply to the present dispute, but It Is 
the usual t"hing when there is recourse 
to this kind of International tribunal 
for the arbitrators to find against Eng- 
land and the weight of the evidence; 
and in the few cases where the finding 
lias been in favor the other side de- 
clines to pay."

the Alabama, Delagoa bay and Bering 
sea disputes, in supimrt of its conten- 
tion that Irvteinatlonal tribunals usual- 
Iv find against England and the weight

Pan Francisco, Oct. 22.— Steam will 
be raised In the monitor Monadnock 
Wednesday or Thursday when the ves- 
sel will be given a dock trial at Mare 
island to test her. The warship will be 
entirely completed and ready to put 
into commission in a month. All that is 
lacking now are some minor parts of 
the gun mounts, which are on the way 
from the East. 

The Monadnock has been building for 
twentv years or more, her keel having 
been laid in 1874. The old Monadnock 
had done good work during the rebellion 
and in 1866 she was sent to Valparaiso 
during the Spanish troubles in Chili. 

Secrf.'tary Robeson, looking to the re- 
habilitation of the navy and finding that 
it was impossible to get appropriations 
for new ships, conceived the idea of hav- 
ing; the .Monadnock and otlur old vessi Is 
rebuilt. The expense attached to this 
eame out of the fund for repairs. The 
.Monadnock wa^ put up in frame at Wil- 
liamsburg, N. Y.. and then taken apart 
and the plate shipped to Mare i.sland in 
a sailing vessel around the horn. 

For years the plates lay exposed to the 
weafli^r. The appropriations for "le- 
pairs" were very small, and the work 
was delayed. Several times the plans 
had ,lo be altered to conform with mod- 
ern requirements, but now It Is declared 
that the Monadnock is one of the finest 
and most efhcicnt warships afloat. Sh.' 
is a double turreted monitor. The (dd 
Monadnock was dismantled here and her 
timbers cut up into relics of former glory.. 


London. Oct. 22.— A dl.sTalch to the

dispatch to Ihe hnparcial saying that 
Rabia, the chief lieutenant of Maceo, the 
insurgent leader, has held a conference 
with his friends, the object of which was 
to iioint out that further resistance to 
the Spanish forces was hopeless, and in 
order to study the means to be taken to 
end the war. The result ot the confer- 
ence was not known when the dispatch 
was sent. •

This is how one woman says she man- 
aged to have pansies from an out-of- 
doors bed before the florists' pansies were 
in bloom, says the Philadelphia Public 

My young plants were blooming so pro- 
fusely last fall that I wished to prolonsr 
their vigor as late as possible, so I 
worked the soil about them deep and tho- 
rouglily, watered well and then mulched 
the ground to the depth of four inches 
with fine, rich earth from the V>amyard: 
not coarse, fresh manure, but mellow 
soil. I worked it well into the ground an4 
watered again. Then I built a rough 
frame of boards, a few inches high, all 
around the bed. banking within and with- 
out, and making comers tight with the 
same sotl. I tacked a slat or two across 
the top and turned a thick row of sweet 
pea vines down over the bed at niRht. 
As the nights grew colder I threw a few 
guano sacks over the frame before turn- 
ing the vines down, and sometimes left 
them cover>Ki all day when it was freez- 
ing or snowing. 

The plants grew dark green and stocky, 
and the flowers were immense and a? 
thick and dark as velvet. I had them all 
throti«h November and December, an.l 
pick'^d about a dozen luscious ones on 
Christmas day. Then the weather grew 
so cold and snowy that I threw a few 
extra sacks— about two thicknesses of 
the doubl»> sacks in all — over the bed. 
anchored the pe«. vines down over all 
with a board, and left them to their 
winter nap. As the cover was not thick 
enough to smother them nor exclude thp 
light entirely, they were green and full 
of buds all winter under the snow. 

On the first sunny day of spring I un- 
covered them in the middle of the day. 
and carefully tucked them away again 
evcr>' night, until they got accustomed to 
the air. They grew and burst into bloom 
in a way 1 admired. On Easter day 
♦ April 14 » I picked a double handful, and 
before the florists had tijought of supply- 
ing them I was gathering fifty to 10) 
flowers a day from my little three by 
ten enclosure. 

I kept them always well watered and 
cultivated, and took the frame away as 
soon as they could be left uncovered at 
night. With ocoajsional mulching and a 
little cutting back the plants bloom-^d on 
through the summer without a sign of 
^^eakness. blight or mildew. I never le' 
a flower go to seed, nor even fade on 
The stalk, and I have plants which arf 
now in theh" third summer ana strong 
and healthy as ever. 


Truth: I have Ix^en two weeks in Paris 
and have eaten nothing but chicken — I

assimilation. It se.irches out disease germs 
wherever they may be, kills them and forces 
them out of the system. The "Golden

Chicago Inter-OceaJi: An enterprising 
cigar dealer on La Salle street, who has 
original ideas on advertising, certainly 
struck a goa|d fthirv? %\''ednesday -lafjt 
when he cleared his show window and 
gave up the space to a huge St. Bernard, 
who almost literally filled the window. 

The cigar man soon had the sidewalk 
blocked. Bankers, stock exchange bulls 
and bears, insurance men, clerks and 
messengers, all stopped it see the dog. 
Those who got near enough to the win- 
dow read the following posters on the 

"What kind of a dog Is that?" 
"He is a St. Bernard." 
"How old is he?" 
"He will soon be two years old." 
"How much does he weigh?" 
"One hundred and eighty-two pounds 
after a bath." 
"How much does he eat?" 
"All he can get— honestly." 
"Where does he eat?" 
"At home and on Chirago Great West- 
ern dining cars (when allowed)." 
"How high does he stand?" 
"Thirty-three and one-half inches at 
the shoulders." 
"Will he grow any more?" 
"Yes; he is liable to burst his skin." 
"Is he kind to children?" 
"Yes; he will rpck a cradle all day." 
"Is the boy proud of him?" 
"Yes, he thinks he owns him." 
"Did he ever save any lives?" 
"No; he never was in the Alps moun- 

"Do tramps come in where the dog 
"No. not if they see him first." 
"Then he does not liktr tramps?" 
"No, exoept well done, with chili sauce."

A showman at a fair possessed a beau- 
tiful parrot, whifh accompanied him 
-.very where on>eregrinations through 
town and country, and excited the ad- 
miration of the gaping crowd by its 
capital imitation of the showman's 
voice and tones when inviting th-^ public 
to step Into the b«joth. .says the Interna- 
tional Curgast. One 'lay the faithless 
creature broke its chain and ►-scaped into 
a neighboring plantation. Soon a number 
of men and boys were on Its track, but 
before they had gone far. they heard a 
loud noise caused by the .screeching of 
birds in the wood. On arriving at thespot 
whence the sounds proceeded, they found 
pcor Poll perched on the withered 
branch of a tree, bereft of most of its 
feathers, and surrounded by a flock of 
screeching crows that were mercilessly 
pecking at It with their beak.s. Notwith- 
standing this pitiable state of affairs, 
thp cn.wd of seekers could not refrain 
frtm laughing as they heard the p<}or 
victim scream out at the top of its voice: 

One at a time gentlemen! Don't rrush 
so, please! Take your time! There.s 
plenty of room?"

The Wheat Market Was Firm 

Today and Prices Very 


Very Large Business in Cash 

Wheat On the Duluth 


Storm Sash. 

Holston. Bleloch *: Co., Third a- enue 
east and Michigan street. 

Over One Million Bushels 

Bought For Shipment 

To the East. 

I'irm cables and continued drouth in 
the West caused wheat to rule strong 
today. Prices on the Duluth board were 
very steady, the range of prices beine 
confined to 'ie. There was not much 
speculative trading, but the business in 
cash stuff reached large proportions. 
There was a good demand for cash wheat 
all day. .\t the opening ^^c premium 
over December was offered by the ship- 
pers for No. 1 northern to arrive and 'i-c 
premium was offered by the mills. .\ 
considerable amount was sold on this 
b.asis. Later tlu^ sshippt-r.-i raised the pre- 
mium to ?sc and >Tjc over December, the 
latter for large round lots either in store 
or for inimediato arrival. Over l.otjO.txjo 
bus of cash wht-at changed hands durtnK 
the stission, of which the local mills took 
75,i»W bus. The rest was mainly for the 
Eastern mills. Decembt-r opened at the 
split 57-oTV9C, declined to Sti'^sC and re- 
acted to 5ic. May opened ai OlUc, de- 
clined '^c and recovered. Kla.x was dull, 
only one sale being recorded at I'lc. Bar- 
ley sold by .sami>U- al 24 to 2Sc. Wheat 
closed 4c higher than yesterday for 
in store, "sc higher for wheat to arrive 
and unchanged for December and May. 

An important addition to the world's 
shipments for the week, compared with 
the figures reporK-d from New York, was 
a subject of general remark, liut had no 
effect upon the market during ^U^^ tore- 
rvoon. Ihe Russian shipments last week, 
as otiiciaily given out today, were ;!,i;it),- 
U<jO bus from the sundry ports, which in- 
cluded Koumania, Bulgaria and the other 
state.s tributary to the Danube; the tx- 
jHj^rts Were given as 2,120,0<j<> bus; India 
shipped only b>,00i» bus and Argentine >.s.- 
i»>i) bus. Adding to those two 4<n>,tN» bus 
from this cuuntry and Canada and the 
total put alloat last week was .s,249,OtV 
bus, or about 50»),i)»iO bii3 more than on 
the week before. aL>out 1,<XX>,00<J bus more 
than was uuotllcially reported yesterday 
and l.iVKi.ono bus in excess of the esti- 
mated weekly requirtiment.s of the import- 
ing nations. The day's receipts at Min- 
neapolis and Duluth were 1136 cars 
agamst loio on the same day last year, 
and in bushels the receipts at the two 
piaces were S-">>*.<.W, whereas all the pri-

The St. Paul Dispatch recently 
claimed that the congressional election 
in the Tenth district of Georgia, in 
which Maj. J. C. C. Black was vic- 
torious, by a small majority, was an 
indication of the decline of the senti- 
ment there in favor of bimetallism. 
The Moorhead News now shows that 
this statement grossly misrepresented 
the facts of the case. The election re- 
turns show that Watson carried every 
county of the eleven except two, Han- 
cock and Richmond. Blacks majority 
In Hancock was small. In Richmond 
county is the city of Augusta, the 
home of Mr. Black, and but for the 
large vote given him there Watson 
would have been elected by a good ma- 
jority. As to the decided change that 
has taken place in the district since 
last fall regarding silver, the News 
shows how false such a claim is. It 
quotes from a leadingeditorial published 
in the Atlanta Constitution on Oct. 4, 
in which it was stated: "The Demo- 
crats won in the Tenth because they 
placed themselves on a platform that 
embodied the true principles of the 
Democratic party. The most vital prin- 
ciple of that platform was the declara- 
tion in favor of the free and indepen- 
dent coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 
to 1. There was no dodging or hedging, 
no straddling or evading. ♦ * * In 
addition to this Mr. Black wrote a let- 
ter in which he made the same decla- 
ration, so that platform and candidate 
were in perfect accord. * • • The 
result in that district makes it abso- 
lutely incumbent on the party in the 
state to go before the people on a plain, 
clean-cut. unequivocal declaration in 
favor of the free and independent coin- 
age of silver." 

The platform upon which Mr. Wat- 
son ran was equally explicit in favor 
of the free and independent coinage of 
silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. Mr. Wat- 
son Is an uncompromising believer in 
and advocate of the same principle, 
so that the issue of silver was not a 
question of dispute in the election at 
all. There is no Republican party in 
the district, and the campaign there- 
fore showed that all the people of the 
district believe in free silver coinage. 
Regardless of the question whether 
they are right or wrong, it is right to 
have the actual facts made public, 
and for this reason The Herald shows 
the falsity of the statement made by 
the St. Paul paper. It is on a par with' 
the general campaign of misrepresenta- 
tion that is pursued by the gold mono- 
metallists. They are continually shout- 
ing that the cause of bimetallism is 
waning and to sustain this assertion 
they are forced to resort to deliberate 
fa.lsehoods and gross misrepresenta- 
tions. A cause which requires its ad- 
vocates to resort to such despicable 
methods must be weak indeed. 

Evans, and very strong pressure is being 
used to induce him to enter the race. 

The Minneapolis Journal says it is pre- 
dicted that before long Capt. S. R. Van 
Sant will release R. G. Evans from his 
pledge not to be a candidate for governor 
and tell him to come into the fight and 
win if he can. The Journal says that the 
fact that such a pledge was secured from 
Mr. Evans months ago, when there was 
no likelihood that he would want to be 
a candidate, and when there was no 
sentiment in the state favoring him, and 
that he is now being held to it with an 
iron hand, is not helping the Van Sant 
cause In Hennepin county, where Mr. 
Evans has many friends. 

Mr. Evans, ho^vever. is true to his 
pledge, and has repeatedly declared that 
he is not a candidate, and, as previously 
stated by The Herald, tthe only way that 
he can be brought into the field is by the 
strong pressure of his friends who be- 
lieve that he is the only Republican who 
can carry Hennepin county against Gov- 
ernor Clough. This view was expressed 
by ex- District Attorney Hay in an inter- 
view recently published by The Herald. 
It is very likely that the Republican 
nomination for governor will be settled 
by the result of the light in Hennepin 
county. If Governor Clough carries his 
own county he will be practically certain 
of renomination. Without Hennepin 
county's suppport he can hardly hope to 
get the nomination. It is pretty certain 
that he can defeat any Republican in 
that county except Mr. Evans, and a 
fight between them at the caucuses 
would be a battle royal. The most re- 
liable reports go to show that ex-Mayor 
Eustls does not stand any show what- 
ever of capturing the Hennepin delega- 
tion, and no outside man like Capt. Van 
Sant could take it away from Governor 
Clough. The hopes of the anti-C!ough 
. men are therefore centered upon Mr. 


The interest in the proposed North- 
western exposition to be held in 1897 or 
1898 is STireading rapidly. The idea is 
pi>pular everywhere that it is exploited, 
and there is no doubt that all the states 
to which invitations are being sent by 
Governor Clough and the commercial 
bodies of the Twin Cities will send dele- 
gates to the conference to be held at an 
early date to decide upon the time for 
holding the exposition and to effect a 
permanent organization that will carry 
the enterprise to success. 

The undertaking is attracting atten- 
tion in the East and is being discussed 
by the leading newspapers with uniform 
approval. The ability of the Northwest to 
hold a great exposition is recognized 
everywhere. For instance, the New 
York Mercury says: "The people of Min- 
nesota are amply endowed with the 
energy and persistence needed to carry 
the project to the fullest success. The 
Northwest region, extending from the 
shores of Lake Superior to Puget sound, 
is certainly entitled to the distinction 
which the proposed fair would confer. 
Moreover, this exhibition would benefit 
the nation, inasmuch as it would make 
known the varied products of the field, 
forest and mine! in that wonderful re- 
gion, which is as yet so largely unde- 
veloped. Such knowledge would, in turn, 
promote migration, and enable people in 
quest of work to find pursuits that would 
suit them. New York, which is in sym- 
pathy with Northwestern progress, will 
cordially encourage the proposed exhibi- 
tion and give it practical aid. Our city 
and state will send to it some of the fin- 
est products of their factories. Our pat- 
rons of art will no doubt lend cheer- 
fully pictures and sculpture to adorn its 
galleries. Our merchants will organize 
excursion trips to the fair and use their 
powerful influence at home and abroad 
in aiding the patriotic enterprise. Our 
wage earners will be no less zealous. F]x- 
hlbitions might be deemed festivals of 
labor. They bring forth for public ad- 
miration the products of skill and indus- 
try, thus inciting praiseworthy rivalry 
in the useful arts. ' 

With such a friendly spirit manifested 
by Eastern papers, the Northw^est may 
well feel encouraged to go ahead with 
the' important project. It is unneces.sary 
to speak of the great benefits which this 
section of the country would receive 
from the holding of such an exposition, 
illustrating in concrete the great natural 
resources, the splendid products and the 
varied industries of the vast country 
stretching from DuIuiJi to the Pacific 
coast. There is no douln that Duluth 
would be particularly benefited, not only 
by this demonstration of the rich terri- 
tory that lies tributary to this city, but 
by the great tide of travel to and from 
the East that would be turned in this di- 
rection while the exposition was In 


Referring to a recent article in The 
Herald regarding the rumor that Senator 
Allen, of Carlton county, would oppose 
Mr. Towne for the Republican nomina- 
tion for congress next year, the Cloquet 
Pine Knot, which is Senator Allen's per- 
sonal organ, says: "The Duluth Even- 
ing Herald feels badly because someone 
has recognized ability in a man not a 
resident of the Zenith City. Of course 
it is natural for a paper to support Its 
own people first, but The Herald should 
not lose sight of the fact that Mr. Towne 
is not the only one. There are others." 

The Herald has not overlooked this 
fact, nor has it disputed the right of Mr. 
Allen to become a candidate. The field 
is open to any man who has the ambition 
and the ability. No refiectlon was made 
upon the Carlton county senator's ability. 
He is no doubt a good man in many re- 
spects. But it does seem very strange 
that his candidacy should be sprung be- 
fore Mr. Towne has had an opportunity 
of taking his seat in congress and dem- 
onstrating to the people of the Sixth 
district what sort of a representative he 
will make. When Mr. Towne has served 
his term in congress, it will be time 
enough to judge him and decide whether 
he deserves a renomination. In the 
meantime every Republican should give 
him hearty support in his efforts to se- 
cure from congress the appropriations 
and other legislation asked by the Sixth 

The Herald believes that Mr. Towne 
now enjoys the confidence of his constit- 
uents, and that they will suspend judg- 
ment respecting his ability as a represen- 
tative until he has completed his term 
in congress. If Mr. Towne proves in- 
competent or faithless to the trust re- 
posed in him, the Republicans of this 
district are just as likely to turn to Sen- 
ator Allen as to any other man— provided 
his views on the leading issues agree 
with the sentiments of the majority of 
the party. 

The returns from the internal revenue 
department of the British government 
indicate the development of the "Kaffir" 
craze. The amount collected for stamps 
on the stock exchange business was over 
$25,000,000. as compared with $18,000,000 
for the corresponding quarter previous. 
W'hy not levy similar taxes on the stock 
exchange business in this country and 
get some money for the depleted treas- 
ury? Of course, the Wall street gamblers 
would raise a roar, but what of that? 

It goes steadily on. Much of the future

The Kansas City Star has discovered 
an unfortunate "new woman." It says 
it was not until the queen of Madagascar 
took to wearing light blue silk knicker- 
bockers that her throne began to totter. 
However, she may recuperate her for- 
tunes by joining a "Thrllby" company. 
With her blue silk knickerbockers she 
would! be decidedly "In It." 

There Is a report in St. Paul that 
Chris D. O'Brien is to be a candidate for 
mayor at the head of a Democratic "re- 
form" ticket. Mr. O'Brien was mayor a 
number of years ago nnd closed up every- 
thing so tightly that there was a great 
roar from the people. The result was he 
served only one term. 

Another sign cf the return of good 
times Is reported. Ten thousand dollars 
was given for a Stradivarlus violoncello 
recently V>y Herr Von Mendelssohn, one 
of the Berlin banking house men, to 
Herr Ladenburg, of Frankfort, who 
bought it for $.1000. 

Minneapolis is still trying to find some

Madjsk>n, iMinn., Independetnt-Pre-'ls: 
Last Saturday Hon. J. G. Carlisle, by the 
grace of Grover Cleveland, secretary of 
the treasury, spoke at a dinner party 
given by the gold tlement of his party 
at Boston, Mass., wRen and where he 
announced to the monopolists who had 
arranged the big feed that the "silver 
question is dead." On the evening of the 
same day Hon. O. A. Towne, of Duluth, 
by the grace of the people of the Sixth 
district, their representative in congress, 
spoke to a crowded house at Minneapolis 
and the people down there who heard 
him are convinced that the silver ques- 
tion is very much alive. Mr. Carlisle is 
a Democrat while Mr. Towne is a Repub- 
lican. Mr. Carlisle follows the mandates 
of the bosses in his party while Mr. 
Towne follows the ulc(arerf;<^iis own con- 
science and an honest wish to serve the 

Nioollct (County Ind€<pendent: Mr. 
Towne, the brilliant Republican member 
of congress from Duluth, seems to be in 
great danger of being read out of the 
party, for his stand taken on the money 
question. At least that is what is at- 
tempted by the representatives of the 
Cleveland end of the Republican party. 
He has been repeatedly warned to desist 
from any further attempt to advocate 
his silver theories if he expected any 
further political preferment. Mr. Towne. 
on the other hand, insists that he s^tajids 
upon the last Republican platform and 
that his views are in conformity with 
sound Republican principle as advocated 
by Garfield and Blaine. Many good Re- 
publicans believe with Mr. Towne that 
the Republican party is pledged to rhe 
double standard if platforms count for

Fred Chipman is supposed to be a

and is freciuently appealed to to settle 
disputes. A couple of days ago Fred was 
In an office and one of the gentlemen

.Mr. Chipman looked scornfully at the 
interlocutor with a sort of Barrettdella-

The questioner slunk away into ob- 
scurity with the remark: " 'Scuse nie

cided it wa:s the hose compt.nyl"

muchly that he forgot to talk to a man

Milwaukee city clerk espied it. With 
honeyed words he borrowed the large 
and ancient timepiece from its owner 
and hung it over the toastma ster's head 
as a mark for the rude jests which were 
immediately forthcoming. Since then the 
watch has not been seen.

Personal letters to Professor Munyon, 
1505 Arch street, Philadelphia, Pa., an- 
swered with free medical advice for any 

Talking of sects till late one eve. 
Of the various doctrines the saints believe, 
That night I stood In a trouljled dream 
By the side of a darkly flowing stream. 

And a "Churchman" down to the river 

When I heard a sptrange voice call his 

"Good father, stop; when you cross this 

You must leave your robes on the other 


But the aged father did not mind. 
And his long gown floated out behind. 
As down to the< Stream his way he took. 
His pale hands clasping a gilt-edged book. 

"I'm bound for heaven, and, when I'm 

I shall want my lx>ok of Common Prayer; 
And, though 1 put on a starry crown. 
I should feel quite lout without my gown." 

Then he fixed his eye on the shining track, 
But his gown was heavy and held him 

And the r>oor old father tried in vain, 
A single step in the flood to gain. 

I saw him again on the other side. 
But his silk gown floated on the tide; 
And no one asked in that blissful spot. 
Whether he belonged to "the Church" or 

Then diown to the river a Quaker strayed, 
His dre^s of a sober iiue was made; 
"My coat and hat must be all of gray, 
I cannot go any other way." 

Then he buttoned his coat straight up to 

liis chin, 
And staidly, solemnly, waded in. 
And his broad-brimmed hat he pulled down 

Over his forehead, so cold and white. 

But a strong wind carried away his hat; 
A moment he silently sighed for that, 
And then, as he gazed to the farther shore, 
The coat slipped off and was seen no more. 

As he entered heaven, his suit of grray 
Went quietly sailing away— away, 
And none of the angels questioned him 
About the width of his beaver's brim. 

Next came Dr. Watts with a bundle of 

Tied nicely up in his aged arms. 
And hymns as many, a very wise thing. 
That the people in Heaven, "all round," 

might sing. 

But I thought he heavefl an anxious sigh. 
As he saw that the river ran liroad and 

And looked rather surprised that one by 

The psalms and hym.ns in tlie wave went 


And after him with his MSS., 
Came Wesley, the pattern of godliness: 
But he cried, "Dear mc. what shall I do? 
The water has soaked therK through and 

And there on the river far and wide, , 

Away they went down the swollen tide, ^ 
And the saint astonished, passed through 

Without his manuscripts, up to the 


Then, gravely walking, two saints by 

Down to the stream together came: 
But, as they stopped at the rivers brink, 
I saw one saint from the other shrink. 

"Sprinkled or plunged, may I ask you, 

How you attained to life's great end?" 
"Tlius, witli a few drops on my brow." 
"But 1 have been dipped as you'll see me 


"And I really think it will hardly do. 
As I'm 'dose comnuinion' to cross with 

You're bound, 1 know, to the realms of 

But you must go that way, and I'll go 


Then straightway plunging with all his 

Away to the left— his friend at the right- 
Apart they wont from this world of sin. 
But at last together they ( ntered in. 

And now, when the river was rolling on, 

A Presbyterian church went down; 

Of women there seemed an innumerable 

But the men I could cotmt as they passed 


And, concerning the road, they could never 

The old or fhe new wa.v, which it could bej 
Nor ever a moment paused to think 
That both would lead to the river's brink. 

And a sound of murmuring long and loud 
Came ever up from the moving crowd; 
"You're in the old way, and I'm in the 

That is the false and this is the true;" 
Or, "I'm in the old way, and you're in thd 

That is the false, and this is the true." 

But the brethren only seemed lo speak— 
Modest the sisters walked, and meek. 
And if ever one of them chamed to s.iy 
What troubles she met with on her way. 
How she longed to pass to tlie other side. 
Nor feared to cross over the swelling tide, 
A voice arose from the brethren then— 
"Ix't no one speak l)nt the 'hol.v men;' 
F'or have ye not heard the words of Paul, 
'Oh. let the women keep silence all'?" 

T watched them long in my curious dream. 
Till they stiKKl by flie borders of the 

stream ; 
Then, just as I thought, the two ways mot, 
But all the brethren wero talking yet. 
And would talk on, till the heaving tide 
Carried them over, side by side; 
Side bv side, for the way was one. 
The toilsome Journey of life was done. 
And all who in Christ the Savior di«l 
Came out alike on the other side. 
No forms, or cros^ses, or books had they. 
No gowns of silk, or suits of gray. 
No creeds to guide them or maun.scripts. 
For all had put on Christ's righteousnscs.

City Will Get After the 
funct State Bank at 


City Treasurer Will Make a 

Demand and the City 

Attorney Sue. 

City Attorney Cant Has Sued 

the Board of Public 


The city wants the money it has in the 
State bank and wants It bad. At thr 
CDuncil nioetinK last night Alderman 
Howard introduced a resolution which 
passed unanimously directing th.- city 
treasurer to make proper demand for all 
money due the city from the Str.te bank. 
In case it is not forthcoming: tlie city at- 

t' rney is instructed to commence suit. 
The aldermen propose to j;et after the 
br.ndsnien in short order and not have 
the delay which has occurred in other 

But little business of importance came 
up and the routine work was nnlroaded 
through with great rapidity. President 
Howard made his appearance about ten 
minutes late and passed around a box of 
stofri-^s as a peace offering. 

Al. M. Gasser presented a communica- 
tion announcing that he had ci.tnm'>nced 
suit ajjainst the city for ST.' for damages 
caused by the flood which burst into his 
basrment at Jll West Superior street 
Sept. Ifi. Referred to the citv attorney. 
City Attorney W. A. Cant announced 
that he had commerced suit against the 
lv>ard of public w^-rks for $4ir).l."» as a 
I'-st case. The city is alleged to have lost 
that amount by to assess prop- 
erty with the cost of improvements 

Th(» county auditor n<itified the coun- 
cil according to act of the legislature 
that Russian thistles had be^n repv)rted 
to be growing on Bay View Heights. Re- 
ferred to the committee on streets and 

Right here a dreadful amma as of 
burnt rubbers began to make itstlf felt 
and it was discovered that .-Vlderman 
Harwo'Ml was taking sly puffs at one of 
Alderman H >ward's .stogies. Alderman 
Cox broke out with: "Mr. President, if a 
l-f)or man from tho Sixtn ward is nut al- 
1 iwed to smoke a corncob pipe, why 
should nn aristocrat from the Third b- 
allowed to smoke a 10-cent cigar." Alder- 
man Harwood promptly dropped the 
cigar. " 

The board of public works sent in a 
cimnnmication calling att.ntion to the 
dnmagcri Temple Opera walls as unsafe 
nnd dangerous. A resolution ordering the 
board of public works to notify th- 
fiwners to tear down th*'' offending walls 
w IS passed.

penses for September was as follows:

She Objects to Some of Mrs. 
Smith's Statements. 

Mrs. May. K. Cameron, who was 
swindled out of all her money by Samuel 
D. Smith and his wife, according to the 
latter's confessi<ui. is still in Duluth, and 
has written, to The Herald from 929 West 
First street, in reply to some statements 
made by Mrs. Smith in the interview 
which she gave to a Herald reporter 
yesterday. Here is what Mrs. Cameron 

"1 see in last evening's paper that Mrs. 
Smith still denies that she wrote me a 
letter. I say that she did. and she knows 
it just as Well as I do. She also says that 
\ v/as not at her home. Now, suttly my 
word and that of the detective from IH'- 
troit is as good as Mrs. Smith's, for she 
told him that I had the audacity to come 
to her home, and she knew when she 
drew that money that it was mine. If 
she would own up that nhe had met me, 
1 wouM then think that there was a little 
honor left in her. I know that 1 have 
dune wrong in leaving my home with 
him when I knew he was a married man, 
but if 1 had not called on his wife this 
would have never happened, and she 
knows it. Hut she wants to make me out 
the villain and her the lamb. She does 
not remember that I said to her: 'Mrs. 
Smith, it seems awful to break up your 
home with your husband, on account of 
your little children." She said she did 
not care, for she hated him. I said that 
one fif the numbers was off of the door 
the day that I was to see her In March, 
and that also has been i)roven. Now, if 
you don't feel too hard towar<ls me, 
please print this and oblige.

Cannot Pay Its Government 
Debt at Maturity. 

San Francisco, Oct. 22.— C. P. Hun- 
tington, said' that the Central Pacific 
would not be able to pay Its govern- 
ment debt on the maturity of the lat- 
ter. Therefore, if congress would not 
agree to a settlement of the debt on a 
basis compatible with th<< linan«ial abil- 
ity of the Central PaclTn to meet the 
obligation, he had no objection to the 
government taking possession of the 
firoperty. He does not seem at all 
perturbed at the iharacter of Washing- 
ton dispatches of the past few days. 
He said; 

"1 have always said that the Central 
Pacific would not be able to- pay its 
government debt at maturity. 1 and 
my associates are willing to pay the 
last dollar of th« debt. If we are given 
time. We want a reduced rate of inter- 
est and an extension of the time, thai 
shall give us a breathing spell during 
which he can |>ay the debt in install- 
ments. I will not agree to do some- 
thing which is impossible. I will not 
start to do something I already know 
in advance I can't do. It would not be 
justice to myself, my associates, or the 

"We can ami will iiay the debt If 
given time. If this request is refused, 
then I have no id»jecHon to the gov- 
ernment taking the road off our hands. 
Possibly some people would be found to 
whom the government couM .sell It at 
its i)roper figures. That would be their 
business and not mine, if the gov«-rn- 
ment is det'-rmined to be an Implacaldi- 
creditor and take the road with the 
lirst mortgage debt. 1 will not make any 
opi)ositlon. Honds to run 100 years at J 
per <'ent would be .*?afe and easy 
terms to let us settle dollar for dollai 
with the government." 

Of late a new disease has developed 
from our latter-day civilization, a dis- 
ease unheard of a few years ago, known 
as heart failure. So common are sudden 
deaths, people dropping dead without ap- 
l)arcnt on our streets, in oflices, 
shops and factories, that the Boston Her- 
als stated editorially that "we seem to be 
In the midst of an ei)klemlc of sudden 
deaths," and the Boston Record voices 
the cry of the public when it asks "what 
is the cause of the great number of sud- 
den deaths, and what Is the remedy? " 

The deaths come from heart failure, 
and the cause of heart failure Is weak 

It is iJlalnly evident that if people, by 
overwork, fret, worry, dissipation or ex- 
cesses, bre.'ik <h>wn their nervous sys- 
tems, nerve weakness must result. 

It is not singular, therefore, that the 
heart is the first organ to suffer the r.-- 
suli of nerve weakness. A nervous irri- 
tation of the heart is the liist symptom 
experienced, causing ^regular iuating, 
rush of blood to the head, flushed face, 
cold ft "t and extriiniiies, with nervous- 
ness and tired feeling. .After a time, diz- 
ziness, giddiness, swimming of the head, 
dimness of vision, sudd ii strange faint 
feelings, followed by a sinking sens;i- 
tlon In the left chest or at pit of stomacii. 
As the disease progresses there are 
trembling sensations, jKilpitatlon or flut- 
ti itng in the left side of the chest, short- 
ness of breath, esi)ecially after exertion, 
stooping or going up stairs. The sufferei- 
will be drowsy daytimes and wakeful at 
night, and is more or Toss constantly 
haunted bj' a feeling of .ai)prehension oi- 
anxiety, as of some Impending danger. 

I'ersons exp- riencing these symptoms 
have heart disease and are in moment- 
ary danger of heart failure — death. It can 
be ciued by Dr. Creene s Nervina, the 
great nuve and hi'art tonic, as this won- 
derful ner\'e restorative will immediately 
give strength and vigor to both heart and 

In any case doi not delay. There is no 
time to lose an<l the cure may depend 
upon your taking this medicine Immedi- 
ately. Just read what Mrs. J. M. Adams, 
of Ellzabethtown, X. Y., says of her as- 
tonishing cure. 

"About two years ago T was in a very 
bad state on account of heart disease. I 
was In a feeble state of health, and from

■Thillljy." which was given at the Ly- 
ceum last evening, i)roved to be a clever 
burlesque fllle<l with fun and with plenty 
of action, from start to finish. The audi- 
ence was only fairly large. Tin- story of 
"Trilby" Is caricatured In a very humor- 
ous fashion. In the play. Svengali Is 
the central figure. In the burlesque It Is 
Spaghetti. Ills make up is similar to 
Svengall's. and given lights follow him 
all over the stage. He hypnotizes every- 
thing, the piano, the orchestra, Thrllby's 
hair, the people in the boxes, all in fact 
except McFailden, the Irishman, who 
proves to be Insulated. Sol Aiken takes 
the part. 

Taffey rejoices In the name of Cara- 
mels in the burlesque, and has long. 
Mowing whiskers of a rich golden hue. 
that seem to Invite the breezes. The 
L.iird is lUitter-scotch. and he prances 
aiound in kilts and talks with a Scotch 
brogue occasionally just to prove that he 
can. . 

Little Billee gives place to Little 
Willie and Elvift Crox exhibits her 
pretty figure in a generous manner In a 
charming costume (jf yellow silk. Poor 
Greckcj could scarcely be recognized In 
the eccentric Jocko, who is Spaghetti's 
faithful slave. Louis Wesley Is Jocko. Carrie Perkins Is "Thrllby." She 
wears the Trilby costume, but possesses 
rather more figure than Du Maurler's 
heroine. She sings "Ben Bolt" In 
Trilby's style, and sends poor Jocko into 
acrobatic convulsions, 

Some features of the burlesque are 
very comical, and still follow the play 
itself quite well. Spaghetti dies 
after the Lackaye fashion, but discovers 
that he expired on the wrong side of the 
table, and goes around and does it over 
again. The fun is all hajijpy and plea- 
sant, and the most enthusiastic admirer 
of the book would hardly complain 
against the treatment of It. 

A number of specialties are introduced, 
especially In the theater .scene. Mark 
Murphy, the Irish comedian, perpetrates 
some of his jokes and dances. W. P. 
Sw€-atman sings negro songs and gets 
off some funny gags. Wesley gives a 
very eccentric dance. Edyth Murray ap- 
pe;t,rs in a startling dance, and turns 
hand springs and cartwheels and twists 
herself generally In a manner which 
would make a ciri-us i)erformer turn 
green with envy. The scenery Is excel- 
lent. The opera house view Is especially 

"Thrllby" will be repeated tonight. 

"A Texas Steer," that sidesplitting 
political comedy-farce which has been 
so immensely popular with playgoers 
in all parts of the country and which 
has i)erhaps entertained more people 
in this city than any of the Hoyt plays, 
will be seen at the Lyceum Friday .and 
Saturday next. "A Texas Steer" was 
written with Hoyt in his very best 
mood, to judge by the remarkably 
witty lines and the unusual .amount of 
"business" which chtiiacterizes its dif- 
ferent acts, for it sparkles with satin- 
on the great American g.ame of i)oli- 
tics and has a set of characters wlio 
are in e\ ery way t.vpical of the uniqui 
peoide whom Hoyt discovers to assume 
the different responsibilities of his jiro- 
diKtions. In addition to touching up 
politics Mr. Hoyt has in "A Texas 
Steer" taken a fe.w broadside shots at 
society, laying bare a great many of 
the little hyi)ocrisles which are patent 
to all who know anything about the 
regular routine of the swell set. Tim 
Murphy, who originated the character 
of Maverick Brander. <lriven into con- 
gress at the point of a pistol, almost, 
is still playing the part and about him 
are grouped a clever company who 
have been so long Identified with the 
piece that every role Is well played.

Not necessary in up=to=date storekeeping, 

Neither is it a conundrum or a mysterious art, but it requires a 
thorough practical experience— a full knowledge of the best 
sources of supply and of the proper -wants of the trade— a care- 
ful and constant application to the business and a progressive 
and liberal spirit. The long successful career of this popular 
store is prima facto evidence that it is pc^sessed of all the re- 
quirements of UP-TO-DATE-STOREKEEPING. No possi- 
bility of things being wrong here. 

Goods always what and as they should be. 
Prices always as they ought to be — 
Low as low could be. 


About 100 of the newest of the new came in this morning; 
they are possessed of every requirement of a nobby, stylish gar- 
ment. Prices verv moderate.

Ex-United States Senator Phlletus 
Sawyer, of Wisconsin, arrived in the city 
thi.s morning from Oshkosh, accompanied 
by J. H. Porter, and registered at the 
Spalding. He is here only on some pri- 
vate business, and will return tomor- 

"I have only read the part of Sher- 
man's book which has been published in 
the newspapers," said the ox-senator, 
when asked concerning it. this morning, 
in an interview. "Senator Sherman is 
totally in the wrong, I am sure, in regard 
to ex-President Garfield having broken 
faith with him. I remember that the 
day before the convention met that nomi- 
nated Garfield I lunched with him. At 
the table I said: 

•' "Mr. Garfield I am sure you are going 
to be nominated." 

" 'I would rather be shot than nomi- 
nated.' he replied 'because I could never 
persuade Sherman that I had kept faith 
with him.' 

"So I went back to my delegation and 
In the convention my state was the first 
to swing into line for him. 

"Changing the subject, T think you 
have a very lively growing city here in 
Duluth. and I am sure the near future 
will bring a boom in real estate and 
business. We are prospering fairly well 
in Wisconsin now. The hard times are

Dalton's $10,000 Purse Was 
In His Mind. 

Hot Springs. Ark., Oct. 23.— There are 
some warm people in Hot Springs this 
morning. It appears that the man Dal- 
ton, who made the offer of a $10,000 purse 
on behalf of the Hot Springs Athleti? 
club, alleging that he was talking as the 
reirrescntative of Mayor Walters and 
President Babcock. had no authority to 
make the offer. Mr. Babcock, the presi- 
dent of the Hot Springs club, vows he 
will have nothing to do with the fight 
unless it is brought off under the aus- 
pices of the Florida Athletic club. 

Julian, on behalf of Fitzsimmons. 
signed new articles at 4 o'clock this 
morning accepting the offer. Dalton is a 
Chicago saloon keeper who came here 
under the alias of Davenport. He for- 
merly ran a place in Chicago called 
'Engel's Pavilion." 

Sam Fitzpatrick. manager of Lavigne, 
this morning ttlegrapht-d Joe Vendig, 
asking him if he could handle a fight be- 
tween L/avigne and Jack McAuliffe. 


Michigan's Statesman Grows 
• Eloquent and Poetical. 

Detroit. Mich.. Oct. 23.— The News to- 
day prints an extended interview with 
Hon. Don M. Dickinson on the Cuban 
question. Mr. Dickinson's expressions 
show him to have been a close stu- 
dent of Cuban history, and his conclu- 
sions are regarded to be to some degree 
indicative of the sentiments of the na- 
tional administration. In the course of 
the interview. Mr. Dickinson says: 

"While we must maintain the laws 
of neutrality, yet the law of humanity 
is higher, and whether or not the Un- 
ited States re-cognizes the belligerency 
nr the independence of Cuba, this coun- 
try should certainly intervene in the 
interests of civilization to restrain the 
atrmities upon persons and property 
daily perpetrated in the island. This 
is v.hat Cubans are hoping and praying 
for. No law can restrain the expression 
of our natural feeling of sympathy, nor 
should it restrain, in my opinion, such 
an expression from this country. 

"Cuba is at our doors on 
the highway of our commerce 
so near that as the mur- 
ders go on. we can hear the shrieks of 
women and children, and can see the 
horrors renewed on the Cuban soil, that 
wer^ practiced by Alva in the Nether- 
lands. V/e can send out sympathies to 
Gret»ce, to Poland, to Hungary, but here 
at home, at our very doors, shall this 
struggling people 

•Toss their fettered arms on high 
And groan for freedom's gift In 
vain?" ■' 


Rumored Plot to Restore the 
Old Monarchy. 

Rio De Janeiro, Oct. 23.— It is currently 
reported here that the heretofore secret 
movement wljich is said to have been 
going on In favor of the restoration of 
the monarchy under - Prince Pierre, of 
Saxe-Coburg, is assuming larger propor- 
tions. The agitators are reported to have 
become emboliiened by their success and 
to be attracting adherents, openly advo- 
cating Prince Pierre's candidacy. The 
latter is a son of Prince Louis Auguste, 
of Saxe-Coburg, and Princess Leopold- 
ine. of Brazil. He was born in Rio De 
Janeiro in 1866. 


London. Oct. 23.— The officials of the 
Brazilian embassy here say that Prince 
Pierre, of Saxe-Coburg, is in a lunafic 
asylum in Austria, and that there is no 
foundation for the report of a movement 
in Brazil in f»vot*»f ^he restoration of 
the monarchy. * 

fn regard to the dispute between Great 
Britain and on the subject of the 
island of Trini<4;id. the Brazilian offi- 
cials say that no action is expected be- 
fore the next cabinet council at Rio De 


Rates Which Take Effect in 

New York, Oct. 23.— The Lackawanna 
and Erie companies will on November, 
advance anthracite coal freight rates 
from 15 to 25 cents per ton. This is th(| 
schedule: At Buffalo, $2. an advance 
of 25 cents. At Syracuse. $1.80. an ad- 
vance of 20 cents. At Hotwaken. $1.45. 
an advance of 20 cents. 

The Erie wll make the freight rate 
of anthracite to tide water $1.85. which 
means really $1.45. as its rate covers 
deiivery in New Yorli city. All of the 
New York companies have advanced 
anthracite coal prices to the West. The 
Lackawanna and Philadelphia com- 
panies will advance tidewater coal 
prices tomorrow to tlie basis established 
by the Delaware and Hudson and 
Pennsylvania Coal companies. 

Bering Sea Convention to Be 

Held in Washington 

Next Week. 

United States Must Pay Eng- 
land-Question Is: How 

Strong Presentation of Brit- 
ish Sealing Claims to 
Be Made. 


Bayard Has Had No Such In- 
terview With Salisbury. 

London. Oct. 23.— The United States 
emba.'isy this afternoon issued a state- 
ment regarding dispatches from New 
York, published by the London Times, 
saying that the United States ambassa- 
dor, the Hon. Thomas F. Bayard, has 
had an inter\-iew of an unpleasant na- 
ture with the maiquis of Salisbury on 
the Venezuelan question. 

The United States officials here assert 
that Mr. Bayard has had no communi- 
cation, written or verbal, from the Brit- 
\^h fareign office, or from the marquis of 
Salisbury, which could be classed as un- 
pleasant, or in any way justifying the 
statements contJ?Jned in the New York 
dispatch referred to. 


Chairman Carter Will Soon Is- 
sue a Call. 

New York, Oct. 23.— Thomas H. Car- 
ter, chairman of the Republican commit- 
tee, will probably Issue a call today for 
the committee to meet In Washington 
early in December. Senator Carter said 
this morning that he would most likely 
leave town today, but he may change 
his mind, as Gen. Clarkson. the Iowa 
member of the national committee, is 
here, and Senator Quay is on the way. 

It is not unlikely that these gentle- 
men may be joined by Committeemen 
Hobart, Fesenden and Thomas C. Piatt, 
and that the plans of the national com- 
mittee for next years campaign may be 
mapped out. Chairman Carter Is non- 
committal on the subject of where the 
next national convention should be held, 
but it Is thought that he will not oppose 
the selection of San Francisco. 

Washington, Oct. 23.— It is stated offi- 
cially today that Hon. Mackenzie Bowell, 
prime minister of Canada, and Sir 
Charles Tupper, minister of justice, will 
arrive in Washington on Monday next 
to assist in the Bering sea convention. 
The meetings of the convention will be 
held at the state department. Secretary 
Olney, representinsj the United States. 
and Sir, Julian Pauncefote, the British 
ambassador, representing her majesty's 
government, the two members of the 
Canadian cabinet will act in an advisory 
capacity to Sir Julian. 

This will ensure a strong presentation 
of the British position. Sir Charles Tup- 
per was minister of marine and fisheries 
at the time the Canadian sealers were 
seized by United States revenue cutters, 
and he has exhaustive information o^ the 
circumstances involved. Sir Julian and 
the Canadian premier also have had 
long experience with the question. 

So far as is known, Mr. Olney will be 
unaided in conducting the American 

The issue involved is largely one of fact 
and not of law. The Paris tribunal held 
that the Canadian sealers captured in 
Bering sea had a right to be there, and 
that they were entitled to damages for 
the seizui'e. The sealers claim over $1,- 
000.000. but this was scaled down to $475.- 

Congress refused to ratify the agree- 
ment, and it was asserted by Senator 
Morgan in the senate and Representative 
Hitt in the house tiiat the amount was 
excessive. Under the Paris award some 
sum must be paid by the United States, 
so that the question Involved is how 


Mint at New Orleans Shut 
Down Temporarily. 

Washington, Oct, 23.— The appropria- 
tion for the loss on the recolnage of 
worn and uncurrent silver coin for the 
current fiscal year is exhausted, and no 
further transfer of such coin can be 
made from the treasury to the mints for 
recolnage. as it is the int ention of thi- 
secretary of the treasury not to re- 
sume, for the present at least, the coin- 
age of silver bullion purchased under 
the Sherman act, and as the stock of 
gold bullion on hand at the mint at New 
Orleans is very limited, the secretary has 
d'r'cided to discontinue all coinage opera- 
tions at that mint for the present. 

Instructions have been given for the 
furlough without i>ay of nearly all the 
force employed at the New Orleans 
mint. About s^^venty employes will be 
furloughed until such time as coinage 
operations can be resumed. 

The treasury now holds of silver bul- 
lion, purchased under the "Sherman act." 
137,644.000 fine ounces, the cost of which 
was $124,080,323; the coinage value of this 
bullion in silver dollars is $177,964,000. 
If this bullion was coined into silver dol- 
lars, the profit to the government on its 
coinage would be nearly $54,000,000. 
which sum could be paid out for th<^ 
ordinary expenses of the government, 
or silver certificates would be Issued 
against it. 

It is not thought that the coinage of 
silver dollars will be resumed at the New 
Orleans mint until there is some action 
by congress on the currency question. 
The mints at Philadelphia and ISan 
Francisco will continue to be employed 
in the coinage of goM.

Death in a Collar and Cuff Es- 

Newburj'port. Mass., Oct. 23.— Charles 
MoManus was killed and two men fatally 
injured and fcyr others were seriously 
hurt by an expl'^sion in the dry and mix- 
ing room of the Fibrelold works on 
Water street today. The explosion is 
thought to have been caused through the 
overlieating of a quantity of celluloid in 
process of preparation for the manu- 
facture of collars and cuffs. 

The force of the explosion was felt 
throughout the city. McManus was 
dead when found. The others were re- 
moved to a place where medical atten- 
tion could be given them, but it is feared 
John McLaughlin and W. H. Poore as 
well will die. The building was a 1-story 
hrick structure, devoted chiefly to the 
manufacture of collars and cuffs. The 
side of the building was blown com- 
pl€*tely out. The firm employs about 100 
men. The building was the scene of a 
similar explosion in 1881.

Reorganization of the North 
Dakota Milling Co. 

Orand Forks. X. D.. Oct. 2:?.— When the 
case of the North Dakota Milling asso- 
ciation attachment suit was called for 
argument in the United States district 
court, attorneys for the Boston claim- 
ants requested an adjournment, which 
Judge Thomas granted, and a confer- 
ence was requested looking to a final set- 
tlement of present troubles. 

It now appears that the Boston cred- 
itors are planning a reorganization of 
the association by buying up claims of 
other creditors before the property is 
eaten up by litigation.

Only One Town Still Held by 
the Black Flags. 

Washington, Oct. 23.— The Japanese 
leg0.tion here has received no dispatches, 
confirmatory or otherwise, of the re- 
ports from St. Petersburg that Japan 
had dtcided to evacuate Corea and give 
her entire energies to the subjugation of 
Formosa. The legation officials view the 
report With some distrust. 

It Is pointed out that there are but 
2000 Japanese soldiers in Corea, so that 
they would help but slightly in the sub- 
jugation of Formosa, where a very large 
Japanese force is already operating. 
Moreover, the latest reports from For- 
mosa indicate that the subjugation is 
practically accomplished. The capital 
has passed into the hands of the Jap- 
anese, and but one small town remains 
In the possession of the Blackflags.

It May Cause Some Interna- 
tional Complications. 

Minneapolis. Oct. 23. — Internatiunal 
complications may arise out of the build- 
ing of the dam in the Rainy river at Rat 
Portage, Ont. It is claimed that the 
level of water In the lake will be raised 
four feet by the dam. and that 60,000 
acres of fertile land, belonging mostly to 
the I'nited States, will be flooded. 

The Baltimore Packing company also 
claims that it will cost $20,000 to recon- 
.struct its fishing plant. The Canadian 
shore is high and precipitous and Can- 
adian interests will not be affected. 

Formal complaint lodged with the fed- 
eral authorities has resulted in the dis-

gave chase. They closed in on the des- 
peradoes fifteen miles from the canton- 
ment, and, after a fusilade of bullets, the 
bandits surrendered. 

The cowboys identified the cattle, and 
taking a rope, pulled the two ijnen up to

after referring regretfully to the num-

Sensational Plot Credited to 
the Murderer of Cath- 
erine Ging. 

Forced Confession to Be Se- 
cured from Adry Who 
Was to Be Murdered. 

Details of the Alleged Plot 
Which Was to Re- 
lease Harry. 

Minneapolis. Oct. 23. — Another plot 
is oreilited to Harry Hayward^ of great- 
er horror than any of the recent one^^. 
It was in the direction of doctored evi- 
dence, in which the principal feature 
was the brutal murder of his brother 
Adry. This plan pleased the murder- 
ous disp«->sition of tliis fiend incarnate 
evenbetter than the plan to escape. 

It was one of Harrys own make and 
is more characteristic of his cast of 
mind than the one unearthed tlirough 
Michael Kierce. It ^ot rid of his arch 
enemy. Adry, and it wiped out all evi- 
dence of the crime by a plan to kill the 
criminal instrument of his plot. The 
personnel of the pbit is pretty well 
known, but no names except that of the 
arch C'>nspirator. Harry, will be given 
at this time. They include a certain 
well known detective whose connection 
witia the case is an open secret; also 
one of Harry Haywards near rela- 

After "soundlnfr" the detective Harry 
slowly and by degrees elaborated his 
murderous scheme. It was sulistantial- 
ly this: Adry was first tn be kidnapped 
and taken to a house near Hopkins, 
out on the prairie, some distance from 
any other buildintr. There he was to 
be kept until he wrote certain confes- 
sions, the form of which Hurry had al- 
ready drafted and presented to the 
conspirators, for use when the time 
came. These statements were to the 
effect that he (Adry) out of remorse, 
was about to kill himself; that it was 
he. not Harry that had caused Miss 
<Tings death; that rather than live to 
see his brother innocently hanged, he 
had taken his own life, in the hope that 
it might lead to saving his innocent 
brother, and more along this line. 

The difhculty of getting Adry Hay- 
ward to write and sign such a state- 
ment was all provided for in advance. 
Adry was not to know that he was to 
be murdered. He was to be told tiiat 
the only way to save his neck was to 
cast a suspicion upon the case, which 
would result in a n^^w trial under tlie 
statement of newh' found evidence, and 
they hoped to be able to build such a 
defense that Harr>- would get off. Adry 
was to be told that all they would want 
from him would be this statement, and 
that he could leave the country. If 
possible, he was to be sent to South 
Africa, if that kind of a i»roposition 
would satisfy him. In fact they were 
prepared to promise him anything so 
long as they succeeded in getting him to 
sign it. 

Here comes the diabolical plot. Not 
satisfied with driving Adry to the ne- 
cessity of writing a confession of a 
crime, which he did not commit, the 
plot was to strangle him as soim as the 
document was signed, then the dead 
body of Adry was to be brought from 
the lone house on the prairie and hung 
by a, rope to a tree near the spot where 
the Ging murder vv-as committed. This 
is the rea.son for the death by strangu- 
lation. In fact, so far had the details 
of this horinble crime been developtMl 
that it was Harry's instructions to 
have a board or something leaning 
against the tree to show how Adry had 
climbed up. Then the body of Adry 
was to be found by some person, and 
the unites found in the pocket, which 
were to open the door of the i)rison to 
the instigator of the murder of Cath- 
erine Ging. 

"It will be necessary to have some 
man help you' was Harrys advice 
to the detective. Help was needed to 
superintend the kidnapping as well as 
the strangulation. "Get some stiff that 
nobody cares for, and when the deed 
Is done kill him too. Dead men tell no 

That more than one of Harry's rela- 
tive.^ were cognizant of the hellish plot 
is known. The admission is made and 
the facts stated can be proved. It 
seemed pretty hard to sacrifice Adry 
and there was some suggestion that 
he might bo actually deported; but 
Harry's will was supreme. Adry was 
to be sacrificed. 

Adry Hayward was notified and kept 
himself in readiness to guard against 
any accident. But th.- authoriti«'s were 
not willing to let the matter rost with 
a simpl.- warning. They were fully 
prei>ared for ;iny emergency and even 
such an emergency as the collusion of 
Adry witli bis n^lative.s to prepare the 
way for Harry's delivery.

A Common Kxpcrienre and the Lesson 

it Contains for People Fond of 

Living Out of Doots. 

A young man in Philadelphia was 
fatally injured not long ago by so inno- 
cent a thing as a cuff button, e fell in 
such a manner that the button was 
driven deep into the fle-sh of his wrist. 
The wounJ though painful, was not con- 
sidered dangerous, and no great pre- 
caution was considered necessary until 
signs of lockjaw appeared. Then, of 
coiu'se, all treatment was useless. 

This is one example of th > power for 
mischief of little things. Here is anothi>r 
less diamatic, but more common and, 
therefore, more impressive. People who 
went from town to country in the beau- 
tiful summer of 1895 delighted to spend 
most of their time out of doors. They 
even lay on the soft grass at night, 
watching the stars and enjoying the cool 
breeze. If, upon rising, a man found his 
back stiff he said: "I must have been in 
one position too long." If the stiffness 
pei-sisted until the next day he said: "I 
guess I must have taken a little cold." 

Dut now vacations are over and the 
autumn is well advanced. That soreness 
and Weakness in the lower part of the 
back continue and with them are other 
disorders. Shivering and fever alternate, 
there is an unconquerable feeling of las- 
situde at times, the urine is opaque and 
sometimes bloody, the skin is pallid and 
the face bloated just beneath the eyes. 
Digestion is poor and appetite almost 

Let us look the matter in the face with- 
out flinching. This is more than a little 
cold, although in the beginning it was 
onl.v a sudden checking of the action of 
the skin and kidneys. Now it is the 
dreadetl Hright's disease, a foe to life 
quite as deadly as consumption. Com- 
mon sense would dictate that no time be 
lost in vain regrets that more prudence 
was not exercised in the country. Let us 
find a remedy, if we can. • 

We are fortunate to know that Warner's 
Safe Cure will bring back health and 
energj', and the normal action of the 
kidneys. It is the function of the kid- 
neys to expel from the system liroken 
down ti.«sues in the form of u»ea and uric 
acid, together with certain salts that 
have done their work. No other organ 
than the kidneys can rid the body of this 
death laden matter. Congested, inflamed 
kidneys act as a drain to keep poison in 
the system. 

What makes Warner's Safe Cure the 
wonder and admiration of the medical 
profession is its power to soothe the in- 
fiammation in the kidneys and to allay 
the congestion so that the urine, once 
more healthy in color and consistency, 
carries away the waste freely and 

One does not necessarily die soon of 
Brights disease. He may lead a miser- 
able uncertain invalid life for years. Hut 
what weary dragging years they art '. 
Let the sufferer shake off his burden of 
sickness and suspense. He will tind hope 
and health in Warner's Safe Cure. 


Colorado People Object to Ma-

whose reservation is in Utah, from 
Routt and Rio Blanco counties, Colo-

whether the annual Ute scare shall be

Col, W 

•Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 23.— No brighter 
or balmier sun shone than that which 
dawned on this morning, presidential 
day, at the cotton states and interna- 
tional exposition. The thousands of 
visitors landed in the city yesterday 
early .-^welled tlie throngs on the streets 
to immense proportions, and locomotion 
soon became a ditficult matter. In ac- 
cordance with the carefully laid plans of 
the exposition management, the exer- of the day were all concentrated 
within the exposition grounds, into which 
the cohorts of visitors and a large pro- 
portion of the population of the city 
emptied themselves during the morning. 
The presidential party spent the morn- 
ing quietly at the Aragon, where they re- 
mained until 11 o'cloc-k. when they were 
driven rapidly to the exposition grounds 
with(nit any parade whatever. 

Inside the gates the militarv was al- 
ready gathered. Capt. J. F. Burke, of 
the Gate City Guards, acted as marshal. 
He had in line the Fifth regiment of 
United States regulars, commanded by 
L. Kellogg; the Fourth Virginia 
commanded by P. A. Schantz; 
the Virginia military institute academies, 
commanded by Col. D. Price; the First 
company of the governor's footguard of 
Connecticut, commanded by Maj. E. 
Henry Hyde; the Second company of the 
.governor's footguard of Connecticut, 
commanded by Maj. B. E. Brown; 
Grimes battery of Richmond, and the 
Asheville Light Infantry. The troops 
paraded around the board walk within 
the fair enclosure and were reviewed bv 
the president from a. stand in front of 
the governm.ent 

After the review the president de- 
livered an address. He was intro<luced 
by President Collier, of the Exposition 
company, who referred to him as thr- 
man who had been entrusted with the 
duty of wiping out sectional Issues and 
line.-j. Mr. Collier said: 

"To an as.^embly composed of Ameri- 
can citizens, an introduction of the most 
illustrious of living Americans is im- 
rHD.ssible, save as a '.mark of courtesy and 
an expression of the regard in which he 
is held by his fellow-countrymen. Still, 
it may be possible on this occasion to 
signify in some degree our iirofound 
gratification at the presence of the chief 
executive of the ration. *The demon- 
strations he has already witnessed prove 
better than could an.v mere words thf 
sincerity and the warmth of his welcome. 
He of all men in this country should be 
best able to recognize the voice of thr 
people, for unto him it has been shown 
in more emphatic terms than to an.v man 
of our generation, but we must convey 
to him an assm-ance of the admiration 
and erteem of the people of the Southern 
states, and especially of Atlanta. 

"The South has received from him a 
recognition as a con.= iituent element of 
this natiim to which rt had for many 
.vears been a stran.ger, when he was 
chosen and commissioneil to erase th? 
dark line of sectionnli.^m from the maji 
of the Union. The administration of 
which he is the head not only gave it? 
aid and endorsement to the present en- 
terprise this city has projected, but has

dences you have here gathered, chiefly 
illustrative of Southern enterprise, 
Southern industry and Southern recu- 
peration. Hut we are also here to claim 
a share in the pride of your achievement. 
No portion of our countrymen, wherever 
found, can exclusively appropriate the 
glory arisin.g from these surroundings. 
They are proofs of American genius and 
industry which are the joint possession 
of all our peojile, and they represent 
triumphs of Ameri -an ski'l and ingenuity 
in which all our citizens, from the high- 
est to the htimblest, have a proprietary 

"While my fellf)w-cltizena of Georgia 
and her neighboring states may felici- 
tate themselves to the fullest extent ujion 
such evidences as are here found of the 
growth and prosperity of the interest.^ 
and enterprises in which they are espec- 
ially concerned, I cannot be deprived of 
the enjoyment afford€'d by the reflection 
that the work .they have done empha- 
sizes in the sight of the world the im- 
mense resources and indomitable thrift 
of the people of the Unitecj States. 

"It seems to me the thought may be 
suj^yested as not inappropriate to this 
oecasion that what we see about us is 
an outgrowth of another exposition in- 
auginated on American soil more than 
a century ago, when a new nation was 
exhibited to the civilized world, guar- 
anteed and protected by a constituti<in 
which was ordained and established by 
the people of the United States with the 
declared purpose of promoting their gen- 
eral welfare and securing the blessings 
of liberty to themselves and their pos- 

"The success which has attended this 
exposition of pnnlucts and manufac- 
tures is not altogether due to the quali- 
ty of the soil or the character of the 
people in any of the contributing states, 
but it rests largely upon the fact that 
these states are members of a benefi- 
cently governed nation whose natural 
resources and a<l\antages everywhere 
have been developed and improved by 
the influence of free institutions and 
whose people have been stimulated and 
encouraged by the blessings of person- 
al liberty, a contemplation of the bene- 
fits vouchsafed to us by our govern- 
ment easily reminds us of the impor- 
tance of a hearty and united co-opera- 
tion in the'r support and i)rotection. 

"We should lovingly watch and 
guard it not only because we are recipi- 
ents of its precious gifts, but for its 
own sake and bei ;iuse it has been put 
in our hands in sni-red keeping to prove 
to tho world that man can be trusted 
with self government. We shall walk 
in the patli of patriotic duty if always 
remembering that our free institi,iti'>ns 
were established for the general wel- 
fare of all our people. We shall miss 
mir duty and forfeit <>ur heritage', if in 
narrow selfishness, » we arc heedless ftf 
the general welf.ire. and struggle to 
wrest from the government private 
rtiivantages whldi can only be gained 
;it the expcn^-e of our fellow country- 

"I hope I may, therefore, be ))ermit- 
ted, in conclusion, to suggest as a most 
important lesson taught by this occa- 
sion, the absolute necessity to our na- 
tiimal health and welfare and conse- 
fiuently to our Individual happiness, 
as citizens, of a careful discrimination 
in our support of policies, and in our 
advocacy of political doctrines between 
those which prompt the promotion of 
public welfare and those which simply 
seem to serve selfish personal interests. 
If we are to enjoy the blessings our gov- 
ernment was framed to fairly and just- 
ly bestow, we sh.nll secure tliefn in ilue

Swilt, But Fatal in its Vtion IdIpss 
Properly Treated. 

Nine out of ten cases can be saved 
with proper care. This is a disease 
caused by microbes ; they grow and 
increase in the terrible lesions of the 
throat; from there they are taken 
up by the blood, in this way they 
contaminate the entire system, and 
the patient dies thoroughly poisoned. 

Use Kickapoo Indian Sagwa for 
this trouble. It purifies the blood; 
it acts direct on the stomach, hver 
and kidneys; it expels all poisonous 
secretions by the natural channels of 
the body, and enables the great vital 
organs to perform their natural 
functions ; it carries the patient over 
the critical point of the di.sease-; 
convalescence and health attend its

no false modesty to stand in the way of her 
daughter's knowledge of herself, of her 
possibilities, of her perils. 

For over thirty years Dr. Pierce has usted 
his "Favv)rite Prescription " as a strength- 
ener, a purifier, a regulator. It works 
directly upon the delicate, distinctly femi- 
nine organs, in a natural, soothtngway. It 
searches out the weak spots and htiilds 
them up. A woman who would understand 
herself should send 21 cents to the World's

At Salisbury. N. C, three or four men 
assisted a young man into the smoking 
car from the ^>latf(>rm and then one of 
them, who turned out to be his father, 
propped him up in a seat and fanned him 
with his hat, says the Detroit Free Press 
Of course we were naturally curious to 
know what had hapi»ened to the young 
man, and pretty i^oon one of the passen- 
gers asked the father: 

"Is it a of accident, sir?" 

"Wall, skasslv, sah," replied the old 
man. "Yo' wouldn't call It a case of ac- 
cident, would yo'?" he queried of the 
young man. 

The patient shook his head in a solemn 
manner, but did not speak. 

"He is sick, then, and you are taking 
him home'.'" 

'Yo' wouldn't skassly call It a case of 
sickness, would yo"?" asked the father as 
he fanned away. 

The young man rolled up his eyes and 
shook hlB head, but uttered no word in 

"Hasn't had a fit or a stroke of ai>o- 
plexy, has he?" peisistecl the passenger, 
wlio .seemed determined to get at the bot- 
tom facts. 

"Skassly. sah. skas-sly. That Is, yo' 
wouldn't call it a ti' or a stroke, would 
.vo'. William?" 

William uttered a lieep-drawn groan 
and closed his eyes. The passenger wa-s 
about to turn away when the father ob- 

"No, it's not accident or sickness or a 
flt or a stroke. Yo" see, V,',' and me 
cum to town this mawiiin' to do a little 
trading. While we was lookin' around we 
found a feller with one of these electric 
machines on wlieels. I'd seen "em be- 
fore, but WilliHm hadn't. 1 knowed 'nufi' 
to let the blamed tiling alone, but Willian* 
wanted to be tickled by 'bH-irlcity. He's 
a good deal of a brag. William is. and 
when I advistd hlni to let the thuig alone 
he said to me, says U^: 

" 'I'op, I'll show yo" mo' fun than a 
mewl kin draw! I'll on them 'ere 
handler and Hop that 'ere machine sky- 
high in about a mlnltl Yo' stand baek 
and lenvme 'lone!' " 

"And so he twisted the machine, did 
he?" aske<l the passenger. 

"Skas.'-Iy, sah— -skassly. Yo' wouldn't 
say .vo" twisted It, would yo', William? 
No! Vo' meant to, 1 reckon, but the fu.sit 
thing yo" knowed that machine had yo" 
twisted up into fo'teeii different kinks 
and knots, and when tne feller turneii 
off the MckU' and yo' let go of the handler 
yn' felt the same as an old bar'l which 
had collapsed in the sun. No. stranger, 
William didn't hev mo" Tju thati a mewl 
kin di"aw! He didn't twist on them 
handles and flop that machine sky-high' 
On the contrary, William u; s busted ruin 
of a youn;j man, and even if he lives 
through it 1 don't nn-kon he will ever be 
able to lift his hands high 'nuff to s<'e if 
the swellin' has gone out of his head! "

U. S. Agricultural Department. Wea- 
ther Bureau. Duluth, Minn.. Ool. 
23.— An area of high iires.«ure moving 
southeast over the Lower Missouri val- 
lev now covers all >listriots from which 
reports are received, and has caused a 
decided fall in temperature in the lake 


that win enable seagoing vessels to make 
vmlnterruptod voyages from Duluth and 
other lake ports to English and other 
fonMgn ports with the agricultural pro- 
ducts of the Northwest. His article In 
the Koglstor consequently gives a very 
correct Idea of the great enterprise, ant) 
its objects, results and probable effccl.s. 
The fact that it is given a prominent 
place In the Ilegister, the leading news- 
p.iper of luwa. which Is controlled by 
Hon. J. S. Clarkson, shows the steady 
progress the waterways movement Is 
making In public favor. It Is not neces- 
sary to republish any portion of Mr. 
Cri»cker's letter, because the people of 
this section are well posted upon the 
subject : Its publication In the Ueglster 
will do much good In enlightening the 
people of Iowa who are not so well 
acquainted with the Importance of the 

The Register gives the movement edi- 
torial endorsement and expresses a con- 
fident belief that It will eventuate in 
deep waterways — by the great lakes on 
our northern boundaries, and the Mis- 
sissippi river ar.d its tributaries — from 
the greatest food producing region of the 
earth to all the markets of the world.

slsslppl river and its tributaries. Re- 
storing and maintaining the water supply 
Is as important as the deep waterway 
transportation, and both are absolutely 
necessary to maintain all of the vast 
territory interested in an inhabitable 
condition. An united public sentiment 
is all that Is necessary to accomplish 
the purpose, and certainly where such 
vast benefits are to be gained there 
should bo no difficulty In uniting and In- 
vigorating public sentiment." 

Why should not Duluth have a win- 
ter carnival this year, with a splendid 
ice palace that would eclipse all previ- 
»>us attempts in that line? The News 
Tribune today suggests a series of win- 
ter sports, including, in addition to the 
curling tournament which has been 
arranged for, ice boat races, trotting 
races on the ice, ski clubs, skating 
clubs, toboggan slides and ail other 
kinds of amusement incidental to a 
v.inter carnival. This is good enough 
as as it goes. There is no doubt 
that many people would be attracted 
here from all parts of the country to 
attend a winter carnival of this sort. 
But why not include an ice palace in 
the list f>f attractions? There is nothing 
that will draw larger crowds than an 
ice palace. It is a feature of winter 
carni\-als that acts like a magnet in 
attracting visitors. 

There has been some talk recently 
in St. Paul of having an ice palace and 
carnival there this winter, but the 
movement has not made much head- 
way owing to the opposition of the 
chamber of comm.erce element which 
alleges that an ice palace gives out- 
sider3 a false impression of the climate. 
This is a silly claim and should have no 
weight with the people of Duluth. al- 
though it may have the effect of killing 
the idea of an ice palace at St. Paul. 
The more outsiders know of Minneso- 
ta's winter climate the better. Duluth 
is not afraid to let the whole world 
know about its climate in the winter 
months, and if by means of an ice 
palace we can bring thousands of peo- 
ple here from the East, South and 
West to enjoy the beautiful, bright 
sunshine and the clear, invigorating 
air with which we are favored during 
the winter, they will be convinced that 
there is no finer, healthful climate any- 
where in the North. 

By all means let us have a carnival 
and a great, big ice palace that will 
overshadow in size and beauty all the 
ice palaces that have preceded it. We 
will have plenty of ice In the lake from 
which tn secure the material with 
which to construct it, and we have num- 
erous architects who can produce de- 
signs that will eclipse in beauty the Ice 
palaces that have been admired at 
Montreal and St. Paul. The Business 
Men's association or the Commercial 
club or the chamber of commerce might 
properly take the initiative In this mat- 
ter, and then if they will unite their 
forces, and act in conjunction with the 
various clubs devoted to winter sports, 
u program of strong attractions can be 
arranged for a two weeks' carnival that 
will do Duluth lots of good. 

Early actiiin is necessary, however, 
as it will take some time to make the 
necessary preparations and to 
thoroughly advertise the event through- 
out the whole country, so that we may 
secure the crowds that such an event 
should attract. 


"Considering the present situation in 
Venezuela, and ti>.e action of the Brit- 
ish government in the seizure of Corin- 
to, I say most confidently that the Un- 
ited States ought to Intervene In this 
business, or formally and by proclama- 
tion abandon the Monroe doctrine as a 
scarecrow which will no longer fright- 
en." These are woi-ds that will cause 
the blood of every American citizen 
who reads them to tingle with the f^re 
of patriotism. If the Monroe doctrine 
is not applicable by this country to the 
Venezuelan situation, then it is time 
to abandon all pretense to the mainten- 
ance of such a doctrine and !et the Euro- 
pean cotmtries do as they please with 
the weaker nations upon tiie American 
continent. But It Is not likely that the 
American people will subscribe to this 
idea. They believe in the Monroe doc- 
trine as it has always been understood 
in the past, and they will agree with 
Senator Davis that the British govern- 
ment must not be permitted to violate 
its principles as it is proposing to do 
and is doing in the case of Venezuela. 

How shall we assert the Monroe doc- 
trine in this case'' Here is senator 
Davi.s' ringing reply: "It will be asked 
in what manner should this govern- 
ment assert these principles in cases 
where their infraction is deemed by it 
as 'dangerous to our peace and safety?" 
I answer, by all means within our 
power, exhausting, first, the resources 
of peace and, these failing, an appeal 
to force. I do not apprehend any war 
with England arising out of existing 
conditions, or out of anything which we 
can forsee. She is a prudent nation 
with all her power. She has given, 
in the Dominion of Canada, a hostage 
of peace to the United' States far out- 
valuing the utmost that she can hope 
to o'otain or inflict by war. I think that 
firm remonstrance and an attitude so 
unyielding that it will demonstrate the 
certainty of warlike action as the last 
extremity will repress aggression, as- 
sert ovir di.gnlty, secure our safety and 
vindicate our principles." 

that there is scandal attached to his 
name has an evil effect upon the normal 
school, and this Is sufUclent reason for 
his resignation or removal from olHce. 



The cases of Charles Sluckey and 
BMmer Hailing furnish two striking (d)- 
ject lessons for the young men of Du- 
luth. There la a moral In each Instance 
that "he who runs may read." In the 
one case, a promising young man who 
hud risen steadily from an humble ihi- 
sltlon to the responsible post of cashier 
of a tinanclal Institution— a young man 
of much ability and with good prospects 
of further advancement in business 
life, had he been faithful to his trust- 
fell through the Influence of the twin 
evils, gambling and dissipation. Evil 
associations are said to corrupt good 
manners, and In his case they led him 
straight to ruin. He soon became a 
frequent victim of Intoxication, he con- 
sorted with women of Ill-repute and 
he was a steady visitor to gambling 
houses. There is but one end to such 
a road as he traveled. It i.s a road 
that leads to destruction, morally and 
tlnanclally. Today he Is a fugitive from 
justice, an outcast and a wanderer upon 
the face of the earth. 

The other case Is equally sad, al- 
though the victim of his own Indiscre- 
tions did not fall so low or become so 
abandoned to all sense of respectability. 
In the case of Elmer Hailing, It was a 
prodigal expenditure of money to an 
amount greater than his Income could 
afford that has landed him In the police 
station. He was Inclined to spend his 
money too freely in saloons — with cu.s- 
tomers of his employers, he says, for 
the most part — and when his own funds 
gave out he appropriated the firm's 
money that was in his keeping to the 
same There can be no ex- 
cuse for such conduct. It was dis- 
honest and criminal, and today he is 
bitterly repenting his acts of folly. 

These two cases .should be a warning 
to all young men who are disposed to 
travel along the same road. They may 
think It is a nice thing to be regarded 
as "good fellows," but such a reputa- 
tion •can only be obtained, in most in- 
stances, by a sacrifice of honor and 
moral principle. The pressing demand 
for money to support this reputation 
will create a dishonest temptation and 
then — read again the stories of Stuckey 
and Hailing and the thousands who 
have gone the same way. In sobriety, 
in honesty, and in respectable conduct 
alone can be found the road that leads 
to honor and prosperity and true hap- 
piness. He who would attain success 
in life must shun the drinking habit. 
the gaming table and all the other 
forms of vice that serve but to destroy. 

"This Is my testament. I leave to my 
wife everything which the law permits. 
I hope that my children will never forget 
the law of duty, and that they will al- 
ways have for their mother the <Jevotlon 
that she deserves." 

If the Mritlsh government Is so cer- 
tain that Its claims to the territory also 
claimed by Venezuela Is just and right, 
why does it not agree to submit the 
question to arbitration? 




Tammany is predicting a victory for 
itself of at least 50.000. It will not be 
forgotten that Its estimate was larger at 
the last election, but there aie some 
reasons for believing that It may be 
nearer right this time. 

The sale of the lot at the corner of 
Lake avenue and Superior street shows 
that Duluth realty Is In demand by 
shrewd Investors. There should be a 
healthy movement in real estate this 

And now the politicians are claiming 
thait the publication of extracts from 
.Senator Sherman's book may have a 
serious effect on the result of the fail 
election Irr Ohio. 

The Herald's extrr. last night, with the 
story of the Hailing embezzlement and 
the fatal shooting of a boy on Third 
street by a vicious companion, sold at a 
rapid rate. 

A carnival and ice palace would be a 
great drawing card for Duluth this win- 
ter. It would bring thousands of visitors 
to the city. 

The Herald gives the news when it Is 
news, and it demonstrated that fact 
again la?! evening. 

In armor, battery and coal-carrying 
capacity the Indiana, It has long been 
known, had no superior as a fighting 
machine. Only in the matter of speed 
have the British declared that their 
latest battle ships have any advantage 
over her. But this claim, says the St. 
Louis Star-Sayipgs, is based upon purely 
theoretical performance, while the In- 
diana now has a record of actual speed 
obtained under service* conditions. Not 
until the British vessels can do better 
than sixteen knots an hour for two hours, 
when loaded to their normal draught, 
will there be any reason to believe that 
they can overtake or escape from our 
first-class armorclads. 

Paderewski is talking of returning to 
America to make another farewell tour, 
and it is not astonishing that such an 
idea should strike him. He gave, in his 
last visit here, 100 concerts and cleared 
$21)0,000. His charges for private enter- 
tainments are enormous. Jean Do 
Reszke declines to appear outside of the 

theaters. He refu.=ed lately to accept 
?1C00 for two songs. The regular price 

of Molba is SIO.W. Plancon wants $600. 

Edouard De Reszke, unlike his brother. 

makes a regular business of singing in 

concerts of the nobility and gentry. He 

charges $1000 for two songs, and made 

last year $50,000 in that way. 

The Des Moines, la.. Register, Oct. 16,

The demind made by The Herald that 
W. B. Mitchell, resident director of the 
state normal school at St. Cloud, should 
resign or Governor Clough should re- 
move him from office, owing to the In- 
jurious effect his presence on the board Is 
having upon the fame of the school. Is 
strongly endorsed by the Bt. Cloud 
Times. It should be taken up by every 
newspaper In the Sixth district, be;:ause 
the people of this di.'-trict have an espe- 
cial interest in the normal school at St. 
Cloud, and the pressure should be made 
so great that Mr. Mitchell will be forced 
to resign or the govcnior obliged to take 

The St. Cloud paper says: "The Times 
is not surprised at the outspoken de- 
mand made by The Herald. Our only 
wonder Is that it did not come sooner 
from the friends of public education in 
this state. The fact that Mr. Mitchell 
has been an editor for a generation, and 
was personally knov/n to nearly all Min- 
nesota journalists, has tended to sup- 
press newspaper comment. But. how 
tho.=e wiio foel an interest in the reputa- 
tion of educational Institutions can re- 
main silent, has surprised us beyond 
measure. If Mr. Mitchell had ever In- 
terposed a defense and challenged his 
accu.sers, the appearance would not be 
sr> bad. P.ut, he never did so." After 
reviewing .^ome of the 
the Times 
should have (juietly retired. As he did 
not, and persists in holding on to a place 
he should not occupy, the action of The 
TIerald in demanding his resignation or 
removil is r»iopfr and just, and in the 
lin" of protecting the b*.>st interests of 
public education." 

Why do not the people of St, Cloud, 
who must take a pride in thf normal 
.school and be jealous of its standing and 
reputation, deal with this question in the 
manner that It deserves? If Mr. Mit- 
chell has not the decency to resign, why 
not get up a i>etltlon to Governor Cl(»ugb 
requesting his removal and the appoint- 
ment of a new reeldeiit director? It 
makes no difference whether Mr. Mit- 
chell is guilty or not of the charges which 
have been made against him; the fact

'^l THE ROUNDER. ^^ 

The Koimh'kt le;-ls moved at l!iis lime 
to write an essay upon getting iip in the 
morning. He is" not going to, however, 
Imt he would like to say a few words 
aiwut the custom and the dithculty at- 
tached to it in some caws. A young man 
of his acquaintance is about as sorely 
atllicted in tliis respect as any one can 
well be. His work is such that he is re- 
qiiiiLd to be at his desk l)y 8 o'clov-k ever;<r 
morning, and liis efiortr; is do this are 

In the tirst place he purchased one of 
those nickel-plated alarm clocks which 
lie placed at the head of his little bed. 
Next morning the unaccustomed racket 
Inought the sleeper out in the middle 
of the floor on the tirst tap, a little be- 
wildered and Ilustered, but wide awake. 
The followirg morning he heard the 
clock and inannged to extricate himself 
from another de-^c in time to get up. The 
third morning Tie did not hear il at all, 
and it was after S o'clock when he got 
up and sailed down to the ofllec v.ithout 
fortifying himself with breakfast. After 
that the ahirm clock faJTed, and though 
everyone else in the house heard it the 
T>arty concerned slept calmly through it 

After that other measures were nece<!- 
pary, and he tried everything. He turned 
his clock an hour ahead and tried to 
scare himself into getting up, but he 
found that he calculated the difference 
between the fictitious and the actual time 
and slept a^ain. Calling does no good, he 
says, and he is now offeriiiK a reward for 
a device which will enal)le him to awake 
in time to retain his employer's good will. 
Some of the knowing ones have been 
having quite a little quiet fun lately 
wlthiii a radius of 1000 miles from Du- 
luth, although the Rounder believes that 
the distance limit might be made much 
closer. People are born, grow up, marry 
and— are divorced. Great is Allah! and 
wonderful are the divorce laws. 

A familv well known in the radius 
spoken of 'had differences, both m.mbers 
were prominent, both were self-willed, 
and both were just alwut as Incompatible 
as oil and water; and the usual relief- 
divorce — followed. The lacerated!?) 
heart of the man healed rapidly and he 
moved to another state, and setting up 
his Lares and Penates there he took unto 
himself another wift — a more joyous crea- 
ture than his first venture. 

'Time rolls its ceaseless course." and 
the husband went to the city of his for- 
mer residence, where his first wife still 
resided, and purchased a very line 
piano leaving instructions in his usual 
hearty manner to "send it up to my 
place." The piano dealer was a guileless 
man and he did not know any more aliout 
the ramifications of the divorce court 
than the Rounder does about playing the 
harpsichord, and right here is where the 
troulde commenced. 

It was a cash sale and the music man 
after the first burst of surprise at selling 
an instrument all lor cash, put the in- 
strument on one of his delivery rigs and 

told the driver to deliver it to Mrs. , 

-saying it was from Mr. . The 

driver started off with the piano l)Ut he 

delivered it to the first Mrs. , who 

accepted it with thanks. 

The gentleman went to his home where 
wife Mo. 2 was. and waited for the ar- 
rival of the piano. But the second wife 
is sharp and heard of the piano going to 
wife No. 1, and in the vernacular of the 
vulgar she "rais< d the roof and howled. ' 
At any rate if she did not raise the roof 
the Rounder is creditably informed tlial 
she chopped a stained glass wimlow out 
of the house in her rage, and now the 
gentle spirit of peace is a stranger in 
household No. 2, and Discord hoUls high 
carnival, and a second divorce may fol- 
low. , . 

Meanwhile wife No. 1 is practicing 
daily on the new piano, and no man can 
un what the morrow may bring forth. 

Senator Davis is winning more fame 
by his clear exposition of the situation 
in Venezuela and his strong demand fur 
the application of the Monroe doctrine 
to this case. If Senator Davis was In the 
White House today there would be a 
change in John Bull's tone, or American 
warships would speak in language that 
the despoller of weak nations would re- 

facts of .the case, 
concludes: "Mr. Mitchell 

A Chii-ago restaurant has decorated 
itself with a sign reading: "Don't fee 
the waiter. He makes more than the 
bos.s and has a half day off besides." 
The trouble about this reform is that 
most waiters have an off day every time 
you don't fee them, which means that 
you do not eat unless you put up. 

It is reported that Senator Brice ha:; 
limited his campaign subscription tn 
$200,000, but it is hardly likely that he 
can secure contrcd of the Ohio legisla- 
ture with that am'umt. 

She looked at him with quick surprise. 
She looked at liim with tear-brimmed 

Her tight closed hand no motion shaped. 
No word her curling lips escaped. 
His eyes were b:-ight, his voice was clear; 
He only said: '1 love you de:ir:' 

Her eves were ti. ep with anger's hue, 
Thev scftened iiilo teniler blue: 
The haughtv curve her lips forsook; 
Her han't hiy opi n on her liook. 
Then as she spoke he drew more near. 
And said again. "1 love you dear!" 

Where sweet love dwells wrath cannot 

li<r smiles chased all the tears away. 
; he looked at him. "Ah: do not fear. 
1. loo, can say. i love you, liearl' 
His smile replied, "Our hearts are near. 
His words were still, "I love you dear:" 

Ah; when the firo of anger burns. 
And all life's sweet to bitter turns. 
Wlien eves are Hashing, lips close set. 
Prepare to storm and to regivt ; 
Then happv we if Great Heart near

John Stevenson Killed Late 

Yesterday Afternoon by 

a RIFle Bullet.

to Carelessness. 


"Thrilby*" drew only a fair sized au- 
dience last evening'. There prohahly 
has never been a company in Duluth 
which has been received with such a 
wide difference of opinion. There are 
any number of people who thorouffhly 
enjoyed the show and con.«idertd it 
exceJlent idfcAon^the other hund there 
are ji: * -r Trkany peopie who called it 
"rott' ' ' could see no merit in it. 

In aln n.*v t . ery case it will be found 
that thf po,Qnlo who give the latter 
itpinion -.vere those who did not appre- 
c'alf the f^ict that it wa.s a burlesque. 
Those who had read "Trilby" carefully 
and had witnessed the- play could find 
a surplus of humor where others could 
find none. This is proved l»y the fact 
that some of thf^ lieenest bits rif satire 
in Ihi- burlesque passed unnoticed ex- 
cept by those familiar with Du Mauri- 
cr» v.nrk and Paul Potter's dramatiza- 
n. Of course to on»' unable to catch 
e spirit (»f the burlesque, two-thirds 
:■■'. least of the interest and the merit

Another thins which had undoubted- 
ly had much to do with the fact that 
"Thrilby" drew only fair sized audien- 
ces was the fact that advanced prices, 
J1.50, v.-ere charged. It was not such 
an attrjtction as warrants such a 
charge ff)r admission. The practice of 
raising the prices is becoming al- 
together too frequent and is bound to 
result in a vast falling off in attend- 
ance. When the people once get out 
of going to theaters it takes some time 
to pet them into the way f)f going again, 
iff> that the policy is rather short-sight- 
ed. Of course there utre some attrac-

the prices, i>ut it is being done too fre-

A New Preparation, Pleasant. Htrm- 
lesi, Simple, Prepared Solely for 
Wea'< Digestion. 

A new remedy for dyspepsia and indi- 
gestion, very highly recommended by 
Dr. Jcnnison and other prominent phy- 
sicians is a combination in tablet form 
of vegetable and fruit essences, pure 
aseptic pepsin and Golden Seal. One of 
these tablets should be dissolved in the 
mouth after each meal and according to 
Dr. Jenriison the effect s"ems to be that 
the food i.s perfectly and promptly di- 
gested, before it has time to s.jur and 
ferment, which causes all the mischief. 

So popular have these tablets become 
with people who have any form of in- 
digestion that they are now sold by drug- 
gists everywhere under the name of 
Stuart's Dj-spepsia Tablets. 

They are not a secret patent medicine, 
hut as related above, contain vegetable 
and fruit essences, jiepsin and Golden 
Seal in a form absolutely safe and plea- 
sant to take. 

A few of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets 
should be carried in the pocket and 
tiiken after meals, and whenever there is 
.".ny pain or discomfort in the siomaeh. 
They cure sour stomach, heartburn,

The Brightest, the Best and the 
Cheapest Light Seen Here 

When the electric light was invented it 
was considered one of the greatest scien- 
tific achievements of the world. Now 
people have become familiar with it, 
ami many dislike its glaring brightness 
and deep black shadows. It lightens one 
set^tion of a room as bright as day and 
leaves the other In darkness. It is al- 
most useless for some purposes, and gas 
is still u.sed freely both In parlor and 
stores. This state of things has been 
going on for some time, but now comes 
another Invention which solves the diffi- 
culty in every way. It is a hydro-carl)on 
system, the oil being carried through 
pij)cs from a tank to the burners and 
feeding the lights automatically. The 
pipes and fixtures are put in by th<- 
.Vmerican Automatic Lighting company. 
of .Mrriden, Conn. 

The system Is already introduced in 
numerous cities. l^ast Saturday 

the enterprising druggi.sts. Smith <IC- 
Smith, adopted it, and now their pretty 
and commodious estahlisliment is lit up 
brilliantly, yet so evenly ilistributed ar'- 
the burners thai no offensive blaze of 
light shows in any one spot. A small 
tink in a side room holds the oil from 
which the burners are fed and operates 
automatically. Wherever i(t has been 
introduced complete satisfaction is given. 
As to price, this light is 75 per cent 
cheaper than either gas or electricity. 
All In all, this seems to be what has long 
l)<>en needed as a happy medium be- 
tween the other systems, especially in 
our city, where the light question is a 
sreat item. A representative of the Home 
I cmpany is here with the view of form- 
mg a local company to handle the new 

John Stevenson, a 13-year-old boy 
living at 410 East Fourth street, was 
shot and almost instantly killed about 
") o'clock last night by Bert Bellinger, 
a 1.5-year-old playmate. The weapon 
used was a 22-callbre target rifle. Bell- 
inger claims the shooting was accident- 
al, but the police are Inclined to doubt 
his statement and the fact will not be 
determined until the coroner's Inquest 
which will be held at 2 o'clock this 
afternoon at Stewart's morgue. Bell- 
inger hfus a police record. The body f)r 
the dead boy was sent home in the 
pati(d wagon by Officer Moen. 

A groufi of boys were standing on tho 
corner of Ninth avenue east and Sec- 
ond street when the shooting occurred. 
Bellinger was carelessly carrying a tar- 
get rifle In his hand and swinging if 
liack and forth. Suddenly the rifie was 
discharged and Stevenson fell. He was 
immediately taken to an adjacent 
house where he died within two min- 
utes of the shooting. The other boys 
among whom were Bert Hanks, An- 
gus McLean, Dan Babcock and Charles 
and Albert Wheaton remained on the 
scene until Ofticer Moen appeared and 
took Bellinger into custody. 

The dead boy is a son of John Steven-

when the shooting occurred," said Attor-

A Way of Home Dyeing That is Simple, 
Easy and Economical— Diamond Dyes 
Make Good Colors and do no Fade, 
Crock or Wash Out— How to Color 
Gowns, Suits and Wraps With Little 

In a letter written last month by 
Georgia Hook. Palntersvllle, Green 
<ounty, Ohio, she says: "l colored an 
old tan dress last fall that I had worn 
all summer, and had a nice, black 
dress. My girl friends went nearly 
wild over it, and they were so astonished 
when I told them it was my old tan 
dress colored with Diamond Dyes. 
Several of them tried the dyes on their 
white cashmeres and all of them had 
nice looking black gowns. 

"I have used a great many Diamond 
Dyes for cotton, wool, and silk, and 
have met with unvarying success. Last 
week I used a dozen packages In col- 
oring cotton for rugs, and made two 
beautiful rugs. I have tried other 
package dyes, but never with the suc- 
cess that I liave had with the Dia- 
mond. I nave never failed once with 
Diamond Dyes, and I do not think any 
one could, if they pay attention to the 
directions that come with each pack- 

Diamond Dyes are especially pre- 
pared for home use, and are guaranteed 
to be the strongest, fastest and easiest 
to use of all dyes. To get the best col- 
ors, it Is necessary to use different dyes 
for wool and for cotton, and Diamond 
Dyes are especially prepared for eacli. 
Insist on having Diamond Dyes, and 
you will always have colors that will 
not fade.

ples of colored cloth will be mailed

Alabama Claims Considerable 
Government Land. 

Washington, Oct. 23. — Some months 
ago Governor Gates, of Alabama, re- 
quested Secretary Hoke Smith to patent 
certain salt springs and salt lands In 
Alabama amounting to seven sections, 
which he claimed were granted the state 
In ISlit. It appears that the state held 
these lands for some time, under a con- 
gressional grant, and that the governor 
now alleges that patents to them have 
been issued to other parties by the in- 
terior department, and (the secretary 
says that if it appears that the depart- 
ment has improvldently is.sued patents 
for the lands granted to Alabama, he 
will request the attorney general to bring 
suit to set the patents aside. 

He adds that for sevent.v-five years 
the state has never alleged that any 
lands were necessary for working the 
springs. He says that for four years 
after 1861, the state resumed possession 
of the salt springs and lands appurte- 
nant, and worked them to their utmost 
capacity. Ne%v wells were dug and the 
number of vents Increased. It cannot be 
concluded, he continues, that each new 
vent when opened carried with it a title 
to (540 acres of public land. 

The tracts asked for by the governor 
number 242, and the secretary says he 
does not feel authorized to have them 
withdrawn from settlement. He holds 
that the grant of 1819 covered the salt 
lands then known, and did not extend to 
such lands as might from lime to time 
be found necessary In opening salt

Some Roar and Have Tides— 
Barometic Changes. 

•Stories about a great subterranean 
lake or sea beneath Nebraska. Kan- 
sas and a part of Indian territory are 
going the rounds of the press." said 
Kobert T. Hill of the United States geo- 
logical sur^•ey in the New York Sun. 
••They are accompanied by details re- 
lating to bottomless ponds occupymg 
areals where patches of land have sunk 
and disappeared- Other reported phe- 
nomena supposed to be in the same 
connection are roaring ^^llsn which 
the water ebbs and flows Such tales 
become current periodically. So far as 
the wells are concerned, they are based 
on fact. I myself have seen a number 
.)f wells in which the water rose and 
fell at intervals. This is not an un- 
common phenomenon in parts or tne 
West It has a relation to changes of 
the barometer. When the barometer 
is high the pressure of the atmosphere 
heini greater, the water in such^^"^ 
and springs stands at a low level. On 
the other hand, when the jnercury in 
the glass is low. the dimin'shed pres- 
sure permits the water to rise. The sur- 
face level varies from day to night tor 
the same reason. 

■There are many phenomena con- 
n*»cted with Western wells and springs 
which are calculated to excite the atten- 
tion of an obser^•er from the East They 
are puzzling oftentimes, even to the 
scientific i^tudent. I have never seen a 
well that roared, but I know no reason 
whv such a thing might not happen. 
There are wells from which currents 
of air come up. Stories are told of 
magnetic wells, in the neighborhood 
of which the needle of the compai?s is 
affected. I never saw one, and no 
facts appear to support this particular 
yarn. Water is the most common sub- 
stance in the world, and there is noth- 
ing about which so much humbug ex- 
ists ' 

'•The most remarkable well I have 
ever seen was on the old battlefield of 
Stone river in Tennessee. A man in 
digging for water struck an under- 
ground stream. He made the hole big 
enough to hold a water wheel. The 
stream ran the wheel and pumped water 
up to the owner's house. Under- 
ground streams, of course, are common 
enough. They are frequent in the lime- 
stone region of Texas, in the gypsum 
region of New Mexico, in the Appala- 
chian region and in the limestone region 
of Iowa and Missouri. The very fact 
that these streams are flowing shows 
that they are seeking a base level, and 
hence it is useless to try to tap them 
by artesian wells, because the water 
will not rise. ^^ , , 

There is no such thing In the world 
aF an underground lake or sea. Never- 
theless, such lakes have been created 
freouently by the imagination of hope- 
ful settlers in the West. The truth 
in this matter was established years 
ago by the government engineers who, 
under the direction of Col. Nettleton. 
iourneyed across the great plains of 
Kansas and Nebraska. They sounded 
every well they found, studying the 
underground water. Of the fact that 
there was no subterranean sheet ot 
water they made certain. The wells 
were like any other wells, the water 
coming from saturated rocks below the 
level of surface evaporation. 

"A f. w- years ago there was a craze 
In the great plain region about a sup- 
posed underground flow which might 
be tappefl so as to irrigate the arid 
lands. It was imagined that a sheet 
,,f water existed a few feet below the 
surface of the ground throughout the 
kjreat part of the yld region. The bp- 
lief sprang from the circumstance that 
all through the second bottoms of the 
Arkansas and Platte and other rivers 
uf the plains wells only a few fe^t^deep 
yielded an abundance of water, ^hat 
geologists call the second bottom of a 
liver la the flats along its banks which 
.-•re above the ordinary level of the 
stream. The city of Washington, for 
Hxample. is built on a part of the old 
second bottom of the Potomac. 

•'The second bottom is filled with 
river alluvium and debris well adapted 
♦ o the purpose of holding water But 
from the circumstance I have men- 
tioned It was inferred that there must 
be water In plenty beneath the high 
olains. Hence the idea of a great sub- 
-errar-ean lake. It U -wholly a myth. 
.--:- ZoT the subsidence of ari-i. ot land 
.♦' bottomless ponds, such stories 
are creations of fancy. " 


But it Beiiooved Visitors to Be 

Detroit Free Press: As I sat on the 
veranda'of the village tavern and looked 
about me I thought it one of the most 
peaceful towns I ever saw. and said as 
much to the justice of the peace, who 
occupied a chair beside me. 

"Yes, purty peaceful, but—" he replied 
as his right hand went slowly back to his 
pistol pocket. 
"But what?" I asked. 
"But yo' don't want to mix in when it 
comes off. Yo'r best way will be to go 
through that door and up stairs, and 
don't come down as long as yo' hear any 

"But I don't understand, judge. Is 
there to be any shooting around here'.*" 
"Sartin to be!" 

"Purty quick. I reckon." 
"But what about?" 

"Wall, " he drawkd, as he pointed down 
the street, "d'ye see that onery hawg 
wallerin' in the mud down thar?" 
"Yes, I see a hog." 

"He belongs to Sam Batterson, the 
cooper, and ^am feels mighty tender 
to-ards that hawg since his wife died. 
Now, then, dye see that pesky dawg up 
the street by that shade tree? ' 
"Yes, I see him." 

"He belongs to Joe Stivers, the har- 
ness maker, and Joe thinks .so much of 
him that he makes his children sleep on 
the floh that the dawg may have a 
feather bed all to hlsself. In about five 
minutes that t>esky dawg will sight that 
onery hawg and thar'll be a row." 

"The dog will pitch into the hog, you 
"Sartin to." 
"And then — " 

"And then Sam Batterson will pitch 
inter the dawg. and Joe Stivers will i)itch 
inter Sam Batterson, and the fust thing 
yo' know the hull town will be pltchin' 
Jnter each other. As I said befo", yo'd 
netter keep yo' eyes on that doah onless 
yo' want to mix In." § 

"But, judge, why should a little scrap 
between a hi>g and a dog lead to — " 

"Thar goes the pesky dawg!" ex- 
claimed the judge, as he sprang up and 
started down the steps, drawing his 
pistol as he went. 

I made for the door and the stairway 
and reached my room. The shooting 
opened lively and was well sustained 
for about ten minutes. When it ap- 
peared td be over I! descended to the ver- 
anda. The judge was just coming up 
the steps from the street. He had his 
hat In his hand and there was blorwl on 
his cheek where a bullet had grazed it. 

"Wall, it's all over till next time," he 
remarked, as he sat down and examined 
his pistol to see how many cartridges 
were left in the cylinder. 
"Anybody killed?" I asked. 
"One or two. I reckon, and three or 
four hurt, but It doesn't begin to be a« 
lively as usual. The pesky dawg was 
shot, however, and now Joe Stivers will 
be layin' fur Sam Batterson every day in 
the year and thar'll he no end of public 


Along the line of the railroad track, 
a little way out of the settlement of 
Towantlc, Conn., is a seemingly bottom- 
less pit, which Towantlc folk fancy 
may be the main gateway to the king- 
dom of Pluto, says the New York Her- 

Not long agn the rallruad company 
undertook to fill In the pit. which threat- 
ens the n)adbed. For several months a 
big gang of workmen has been trying 
to fill up the Insatiable hole with fsir 
loads of sand and gravel, and with the 
result that it is apparently nut a whit 
less hungry for sand and gravel than 
at the outset. Old abandoned freight 
cars are used for fillers. These are 
stuffed lull of tartli and dumped Into 
the greedy I'atliomless abyss. The first 
consignment i»f sand loaded cars, fifty 
in number, went ker-spl{ish Into the 
liquid chasm which sucked them ilowii 
like f|uU'ksaiid. but very swiftly, and 
the slimy waters heaved and i-wayed 
with thick, heavy waveb, dimpling and 
bubbling like a porridge, for a long 
time thereafter. Then speedily more 
cars were dumped in and they were no 
more than pebbles. Right in the wake 
of the cars the workmen dispatched 
500 car loads of loose earth, then more 
cars and more-, gravel and sand. Up 
to date over .>0o cars hava been cast 
into the bottomless pit, and nobodj- 

knows exactly how many loads ( 

In carrying on the work the company 
used two special freight trains of thirty 
( ars, whii-h made live trips a day each 
and had dumped 7634 car loads into the 
hole ui> to the time the workmen lost 
count of the number of loads. As far 
as anyone knows all the mass of stuff 
that has ever been thro%vn into it has 
had no effect whatever in the way of 
stufliing its maw. and the company is 
inclulned to think the undertaking is a 
hopeless one. However, it will keep on 
dumping 200 loads of earth dally. Said 
a workman, gazing dejectedly into 
Towantlc's black, shaking, heaving 
vicious pit: "Where all this stuff, dirt 
and cars has gone to, blamed If I 
know. The company has already spent 
pretty nearly $20,000 trying to fill it, 
but all of us now believe it really Is 
bottomless." Scores of neighbors visit 
Towantlc each week, tread gingerly 
about the edges of the pit and gaze 
with awe at the spot where the cars 

As announced in The Herald extra 
last evening, p]lmer Ij. Hailing was ar- 
rested and locked up at the Central sta- 
tion late yesterday afternoon on a 
cliarge of grand larceny preferred by A. 
M. Marshall, of the Marshall-Wells 
Hardware company, where Hailing was 
employed as bookkeeper and collector. 
The night was spent in jail and this 
morning Hailing was arraigned. In the 
municipal court. He was represented by 
Attorney Charles O. Baldwin, who 
waived the reading of the complaint, and 
the examination was set for Nov. 1, at 
10 a. m. After a short delay, friends de- 
I^osited 1400 bonds, for Elmer's appear- 

The complaint, which was sworn out 
by A. M. Marshall, charges Hailing with 
the larceny of $S5 of the linn's money, 
liut his aggregate peculations are esti- 
mated at $300. The entire period of these 
transactions is thought by the firm to 
cover a year. Hailing hati been In the 
employ of the firm and its predecessor, 
the Chapin-Wells company, for six years, 
commencing as a collector and general 
utility man in the retail store. He 
made many friends and appeared atten- 
tive to business. Until a few weeks ago 
liis conduct was above suspicion. 

According to Credit Clerk Fred W. 
Parsons, a short time ago it was discov- 
ered that Hailing had collected money 
without making returns, and on Satur- 
day the young man was discharged. On 
Monday the firm learned that Hailing 
had collected %iu since leaving their em- 
ploy. The $SG mentioned in the com- 
plaint was paid liy Charles Fenton, of 
Pike Lake, who purchased a bill of goods 
amounting to $17".. Mr. Parsons heard 
that Elmer was on the point of leaving 
the city, and met him in Atkinson's sul- 
oon and charged him with the theft, 
which Hailing confessed. He cried bit- 
terly when he was arrested. A meeting 
of the directors of the Marshall- Wells 
company was held last evening, and it 
was decided to push the prosecution. 
Hailing said last night that he had

"There are few people who know that 
the South Pacific volcanoes are the most 
destructive in the world," said the Rev. 
Dr. William E. Houston in the Kansas 
City Times. "I have been a great stu- 
dent of these volcanoes, and have spent 
much time visiting them. The volcano 
dl.«tricts of the Bay of Naples and Sicily 
are small as compared with those of the 
northern peninsula of the Island of 
Celebes, just to the east of Borneo, in 
the South Pacific ocean. Vesuvius and 
Aetna are insignificant as compared with 
the volcanic chain that studs this island 
region. One or the other of the vol- 
canoes in this great chain is continually 
belching forth streams of lava and great 
stones, then fluid clay that runs red, blue 
and gray. The Donda, !H») feet high, and 
the Sapoetan, 60(iO feet high, are the two 
greatest volcanoes of the district. 

"Each of tliem has been in eruption 
several times during the last 100 years- 
Were It not a sparsely settled country 
the loss of life would be great. Klabat, 
or Two Summits, another terrible vol- 
cano, is marked by a great lake in its 
crater, and not far away is Deuwa Doe- 
dara. Two Sisters; sMll another Is Lakon, 
which local tradition says is inhabited 
by an evil spirit, and from which there 
came a terrible eruption about 500 years 
ago that devastated] tlie entire district. 
All of tha i.s"lands around the north end j 
of Celebes are volcanic. The archipelago 
that leads to the Phillippian islands to 
the north, is dotted with active mouths 
of fire, important among which is the su- 
perb pyramidal volcano, Aboe, which, 
t!■•aI^sla"ted, mwins ashes, and Gunpva 
Alva, which, in all probability, has been 
the most doslructive volcano the world 
has ever known. 

'•These islands are owned by Holland. 
The people are Malays and Alfooroos, the 
most civilized population of the coast 
l>eing Malay, the savatre tril>es of the in- 
terior. Alfooroos- There are many tribes 
in Celebes, some of Papuan, others of 
Phillippine origin. The Bougis tribe also 
dominates. During the present century 
thousands of the inhabitants of Celebes 
were buried beneath the streams of hot 
ashes and lava, utterly >overwhelming 
them in moulten sheets. AH these is-

Elmer Hailing is about 24 years of age, 
and was known about town as a "good

An exchange tells a story of a Scotch 
minister whose physician ordered him 
to drink beef tea. The next day when 
the doctor called the i)atient com- 
plained that the new drink made him 
sick. "Why. sir," said the doctor, "that 
can't be. I'll try It myself. " As he 
spoke he poured some of the tea Into a 
skillet and set It on the fire. Then hav- 
ing warmed It he tasted It, smacked his 
lips, and said: "Excellent, excellent!" 
"Man," said the minister, "Is that the 
way ye sup It?" "Of; what 
other way shf)uld it be suppil ? It's 
excellent." "It may bo gude that way, 
doctor; but try it wi' the cream and 
sugar, man. Try it wl' that and see 
boo ye like it." 

Arguments that have seemed sound to 
their scientific projectors have been ad-

the bottom of the northern part Of the

The improvements which W. H. Soulby 
has lately added to the microphone, or 
"sound magnifier," makes it one of the 
most marvelous mechanical contriva;ices 
of the age, says the St. Louis Republic. 
The special construction of this in- 
strument is of no particular interest to 
any one except experts, but what is told 
of its wonderful powers as a magnifier 
of sounds will entertain young and old, 
as well as the scientific and unscientific 
readers of "Notes for the curious." 

After the inetrument had been com- 
pleted with the exception of a few finish- 
ing touches, Soulby found it absolutely 
necessary to keep tlie door of his work- 
shop tightly closed, so as to admit no 
sounds from th«» outside, otherwise the 
iiiarticulate rumblings given off by the 
"ejector" would have l>ecome unbearable. 
Even with closed doors the cap had to 
be kept constantly in place on the re- 
ceiver to keep tht in*:trument from .send- 
ing forth a roar, which previous investi- 
gation had proveil to be a comb-ination 
of sounds produced by wateh beats, 
breathing, the hum of files, etc. 

A fiy walking across the receiver of the 
instrument made a sound equal to a 
horse crossing a bridge, and when -Mr. 
Soulby laid his arm across the box the 
blood rushing in Ills veins gave forth a 
souaid wliich much resembled that made 
by the pump of a large steam engine. 
The playing of a piano in a house across 
the street was. w lien ejected from Soul- 
bv's machine, like the roar of an ava- 
lanche, and the washing of dishes in the 
kitchen of a house across the alley made 
a sound which tlic inventor of the ma- 
chine says was "a burden to his soul." 
When anyone en;-red the room, walked 
about, coughed, touched the table or door 
handles, the shriek which issued from 
the ejector was most painful to neax. 

Hundreds of uses have I)Crn suggested 
for the microphone, the most practical 
being those of blood circulation and lung 


The Budget: A young minister settled 
over a smjall country parish was in- 
structed by his parishoners to procure a 
piano for their use. He did so. telling 
the dealer to chai-ge the bill for rental to 
the secretarv of the parish. When the 
bill amounted to $2.5 the society being un- 
able' to pay it, as well as the salary of the 
pastor, the music dealer dunned the min- 
ister for the money, telling him that he 
assumed the responsibility. The latter 
replied that he never assumed the re- 
sponsibility of another, having all ho 
could do 10 pay his own bills, wiiereupon 
the dealer threatened to sue him. 

A short time after our friend received 
a letter from a New York collection 
agency, to which, as well as several fol- 
lowing, he paid no attention until the fol- 
lowing short but definite letter came: 

•Rev. : 

"Dear Sir:— I'nless you remit at once 
we shall publish you all over the country 
as a Delinquent Debtor. 

"Yours, etc.. 

Truth: I was informed by everyone in 
our village that our landlord was a man 
of his word and would do just what he 
agreed to, so when I got him to agree 
to paint our house and surroundings. I 
thought 1 had a pretty good bargain. 
"I'll paint everything around the place 
that you want me to," said he, with a 
suave smile that wa? only slightly 
marred by his prodigious chew of toliacco. 
That was where I got left. I should have 
made him agree to paint the colors that 
1 desired. Unfortunately our tastes do 
not agree, and that house looks like a 
chromatic aberration of a nocturne by 
Whistler. Whem 1 argued with him he 
merely said he was painting it the color 
it ought to be. Finally I a.sked him what 
color the leaves around the place ought 
to be "Green," said he, "as a matter 
of course." I have him now painting the 
autumn leaves green, as fast as they 
turn. I am ahead of one landlord, any- 


Washington Star: He had made sure 
that there were no men around the house, 
and he drew himself up, inflated his 
chest and said: 

••Don"t think, madam— don"t think fur 
an instant thet I ast you fur thet piece 
of pie I mentioned because I"m hungry." 

"What did you want with it, then?" 
she inquired. 

•I wanted ter get square weth a mortal 
and old-time foe. I wanted ter feed it 
ter thet dog o' your'n ez tried ter bite 
me when I came through the front yard. 
Thet's whut I wanted with it." 

To which he replied:

Was a Racer and a Mile 
His Limit. 

Was! Sir Arthur Sullivan's Latest 
Little Story. 

"Did you ever hear of Finnegans 
mulo?" queried Charfc-y Mann, door- 
koeptr of the press gallery of the house 
of representatives, to a group of horse- 
men, says the Washington Star. "He 
was probably the greatest mule that was 

ever foalt-d. He could trot a mile in 2:40 
li you could control him. but there was 
the rub. He unquestionably carried on 
the dam's .side racehorse blood. When I 
innocently purchase'l him. about ten ( 
years ago. I knew nothing of his past 
record. The truth is. my father wanted 
a mule to walk a treadmill, and I pur- 
chased him at an auction .'<ale. One day 
I wanted lo go to the Pimlico races in 
company with a friend of mine, and as j 
no horse was at hand, we patched up an 
old ranshakle gig and started for the 
track. The mule drove quietly enough, 
and seemed entirtly devoid of guile. 
When we drove up to the Pimlico gates 
we found a line of hacks in front of us. 
The driver of one of the rear hacks hap- 
pentd to look back as we drove up, and, 
after making careful insjiection of the | 
mule, suddenly shouted to his com- i 
panions in front of him in a loud voice: j 
•Say, boys, here's Finnegans mule!' • 
Then began the greatest stampede you ( 
ever saw of hacks. Why, they fairly | 
fell over one another in getting ' 
away. ' 

"Subsequently I ascertained the cause 
of the stampede. It appears that the 
mule was well known as "Finnegan's 
crazy mule.' He had a habit, when 
owned by Finnegan of jumping on any 
vehicle in front of him and destroying 
the same. No one had been able to hold 
liim when excited by racing him on the 
road or track, so that for driving and 
racing purposes he had. in other hands, 
become practically worthless. When I 
learned his history I put a rubber bit on 
him, instead of the cruel bit with which 
he had formerly been driven and which 
lacerated his mouth to such an extent as 
to make him uncontrollable. When I got 
him in shape. I matched him against 
some of the fastest trotters in Balti- 
more. I 

"If h" felt just rlgbt..and did not get 
mad, it took a good trotter to beat him a 
mile. For seme reason or other, how- 
ever, he would not repeat heats. One 
mile was as much as he would stand, for 
when he was brought out for the second 
neat, he would invariably bolt the track, 
and no man was ever found strong 
enough to control him when in one of 
his crazy fits. Myself and friends won a 
pot of mone>' with him in single heats. 
He had as pretty a trotting action as 
any f)ne cared to .';ee; splendid kn*-- 
action, and how fast he could put 'em in 
when he want>^d to! His reputation ex- 
tended to the surrounding country, and I 
sold him to some sporting parties in 
Norfolk, Va., for $500. He subsequently 
won some races In fast time for a mule, 
and certainly was a wonder. He was 
the only fast-trotting mule ever pro- 
duced that we have any history of." 

THE !>(><; WAS SC.VRED. 

T.,ouisville Coinmi^rcial: Mr. Joe Dun- 
la ji and sevfral frienfls were walking 
mit Third street the other night when 
they suddenly becnme aware that they 
were being foliowerl by a little dog. 
T>ie df)g would iiin ui> and snap at 
their heels and then run away. 

Mr. Dunlap .said: "Watch me scare 
the pants off that little dog." So when 
the dog came rimning iii> again Mr. 
Dunlap rushed for him with his ••ane. 
Tiie next thing anyl)ody knew the cane 
was broken and the dog had Mr. Dun- 
lap by the leg. 

.After the dog was beaten off by the 
others Mr. Dunlap said: "Ain't it fun- 
ny what some animals will do when 
they Jire scared?"

Sir Arthur Sullivan is fond of relat- 
ing that when he was in Chicago^he was 
mistaken for John L. Sullivan, the 
prize fighter, and tells an amusing 
stoi-y of what came of this mistake, 

says the Boston Beacon. 

Sir Arthur says: "During my Ameri- 
can tour I agreed ti> lead the orchestra 
upon the opening night of 'The Mikado' 
in a place called Illinois or Chicago, or 
some such name, and the manager oC 
the opera house had billed the thing 
all over the city, and from every blank 
wall and newspaper during the day I 
wa'S stared in the face by the announce- 
ment: ".Mr. Sullivan v.ill lead the or- 
chestra in person this evening.' I 
would prefer to have had my title at- 
tached to my name— not that I go in 
for that kind of thing very heavily, 
but it's Just as well to be exact — but. 
singularly enough, the manager who 
had the bills printed didn't know I'd 
been knighted. 

"When I got to the opera house that 
night and looked out from the edge of 
the curtain, 1 found the theater was 
packed. It seemed td me to be rather a j 
swell house, too, most oi the ladies and ■ 
gentlemen being In evening dress in the 
boxes and orch3stra circles. Hut what 
surprised me was that the three front | 
rows of the orchestra chairs were oc- 
cuT'ied by as \ illianous-looking a set of 
men as I ever saw in a respectable 
place. Most of them wore double- 
breasted pea-jackets and big diamond?, 
and they all had shining high hats in 
their laps. 

"While I was still looking at them 
and wondering, they suddenly set up 
shouts of 'Wof>h. wooh, wooh!" which 
they continued until the manager told 
me I had better go before the curtain. 

"When I appeared on the stage, T 
thought those three rows of men would 
go crazy. They shouted and screamed 
as if they were mad, they c:illed for 
three times three arid a tiger again and 
again, and the performance was de- 
layed fifteen minutes. It was the most 
enthusiastic ovation I ever receiveil. 
and naturally I felt a little proud that 
my music should appeal to men of such 
rough exterior. Then I came to the con- 
clusion that they were self-made men of 
wealth, of the real American type, who 
scorned conventionalities of effete 
society, while yet appreciating tlie mu- 
sic of a master-mind. 

"When I came out to take my place 
in the orchestra I had to wait another 
fi\'e minutes for the applause in the 
three front rows to subside, and when 
they finally became talm, and I gave 
a preliminary sweep of my baton pre- 
paratory to starting the music, an ad- 
miring chorus of 'Ah-hl' burst from the 
same front rows. All through the per- 
formance the same extraordinary mani- 
festatif)ns were continued. They sent 
up basket after basket of flowers, and 
g:Tvq mQ a receptinn every time 1 
came In and cheered frantically every 
time I went out, enthusiasm always 
emanating from the same three rows. 
"After the performance was over I 
was infirmed that a delegation wa:i 
waiting at the stage door to escort mo 
to a banquet, and T found the same 
gentlemen there who had occupied the 
three front rows in the theater. They 
Introduced themselves to me rather 
awkwardly and their appearance was 
such that I should never have ventured 
to attend their banciuet if their love 
of music had not been so strikingly il- 
lustrated in th«dr ailulation of myself. 
One of them offered to button my 
gloves, another insisting upon carrying 
my umbrella. 

"We drove, six in a carriage, to a very 
dirty back room of a saloon, and there 
were fully five thousand men and boy.s 
pushing and crowding to obtain a 
glimpse of me when I alighted. An 
immense amount of champagne was 
brought in, but the dinner itself was 
despicable. I was very much embar- 
rassed, also, by the fact that my enter- 
tainers were continually asking me 
about persons and things with which 
I was totally unacquainted. They In- 
quired how much I weighed, and when 
I .said one hundred and thirty pounds 
they laughed as if it were a capital 
joke. One of them begged me to give 
what he called an 'exhibition song' on 
the stage the next night; and another, 
with a great many apoloKie.s, asked 
me if I didn't think it was lovvering^ny- 
self for a man with .so many gifts to 
lead an orchestra. 

"Just as the dinner was concluded a 
tall stranger burst into the room, and 
was greete<l with a shout of welcome. 

"I came all the way on the 'Lightnin' 
express,' he said. "I wouldn't a missed 
.seein' Sullivan for anything. Where 
is he?" 

'I was dragged to my feet, and pre- 
sented to hirri. 

"You ain t Sullivan," he said, con- 

"At this all the others In the room 
formed a ring around us. and someon. 
advised the new arrival to prepare to 

" 'I beg your pardon, but I am Mr. 

• "That fellow ain't no more Jehn L. 
Sullivan than T am.' shouted the stran- 
ger, turning to the others." 
" 'Of course I'm not John L. Sullivan 

— whoever he may,' I said. 'I am Sir 
Arthur Sullivan.' 

"There was a moment of perfect si- 
lence, in which my entertainers gazed 
into each other's faces with expressions 
of heart-rending despair. Then a 
threatening murmur arose that chilleil 
my hearts blood, and rushing to the 
window I escaped and fled from that 

'I have been wcmdering ever since 
who John L. Sullivan is, and whether 
he is a librettist or a composer." 


A Kind of Infant Which is Rare 

Every woman in Japan above the ag - 
of 15 years seems to own a baby, and 
usually carries it around on her back, 
says the Chicago Record In one of it-s 

nevtsy letters from Yokohama, Ja].* 
anese babies never cry — they never get 
imi)atient or discontented, but they stay 
where they are put and enjoy it. You 
can see hundreds of women at work in 
the tea-firing houses, where the teri:- 
perature is always very high, and the 
work Is very hard, going through their 
twelve hours of labor with babies three 
or four weeks old straj)ped upon theii 
backs, and the babies never whimper, 
no mater how much the mother shakes 
them up when they are stirring the h>pt 
tea leaves up to their shoulders in the 
pans. Then, after three hours, when 
the regular resting time comes an i 
everybody stops for refreshments, baly 
gets his. He Is unstrapped and nursed 
while the mother is dipping into her 
little rice can with a coufde of chop- 
sticks, and then, when the whist 'e 
blows, he is straiiped on again for an- 
other three hours, without opening hi.s 
lips except to yawn or say "goo" i.y 
make sr>me other remark as the inii- 
dents and peculiarities of 'this wonde:- 
ful world excite his attention. 

When he gets a little older his 
mother iiuts him in a tea box with 
some little plaything, and he will striy 
there all day, safe from harm, an 1 
groV and enjoy himself. He can exer- 
cise his arms by pulling himself by the 
sides of the box, and his legs by trea<l- 
ing around in that limited space, and 
can assist in the development <if his 
dental apparatus by chewing the edgi s 
of the- boards, but he never s(?ems to 
get tired or hungry or dissatisfied, al- 
though any live American baby th;'! 
ever existed would be howling like a 
drove of blue devils in five minut ,^" 
after his mother haol gone to her work. 

Toward noonday, when the sun gets 
hot and the little ones feel sleepy, they 
lie down on the floor like a cat or ;< 
dog. It may be a pavement or brick 
or stone, it may be a board floor, bnt 
they need no cradle, or blanket, or pil- 
low, only a sheltered corner out of tlie 
sun, where they won't be stepped upon, 
an<l they do not have to be rocked er 
sung to sleefi. They take care of them- 
selves. Their mothers are busy earn- 
ing S. 10 or 15 cents a day by twel\ e 
or thirteen hours of hard labor in a 
warehouse, where the temperature is 
often up to 100 degrees all day lonv. 
and the odor of tea is so strong tliat i!i 
almost strangles you; so they do not 
wish to bother them or add to their 
cares, and hfive the good sense and 
self-crintrol to find their own amuse- 
ment anil look after their own comfort, 
just like a puppy or a kitten. 

That is the kind of baby they rait?e 
in Japan. 

The Veji5 Will Come to Du-

porary Repairs. 

It Is Expected that the John 

Craig Will Be Raised 


The A. D. Thomson Libeled

Chicago. Oct. 23.— (Special to The Her- 
ald.)— The steamer Vega, with coal for 
Duluth, which struck on a shoal off Col- 
chester, early yesterday morning, and 
partly sank, was taken to Detroit. The 
underwriters have given her permission 
to proceed to Duluth after temporary 
repairs have been completed at the dry 
dock at Detroit. 


Amherstburg, Ont.. Oct. 23.— (Special

bow, and ten frames are broken. The 
hole is a jagged one, about 15 feet long. 
Temporary repairs only will be made 
here. The cost of permanent repairs will 
exceed $10,000. About 400 tons of coal 
were thrown overboard bcffire she could 
be relea.sed. Her captain is unable to 
account for the accident, and .says that 
at the time she struck she was in what 
is ordinarily at that point five fathoms 
of water. 


Port Huron. Mich., Oct. 23.— The 
schooners Ganges and M. I. Wilcox, in

The appearance of rust on the tunine 
pins and the steel wires of a piano is a 
sure indication that I'he piano has hot n 
exposed to moisture or dampness, says 
the Ladies' Homo Journal. The lime of 
year or tiie a«e or quality of the piano 
has notihiii.ii to do with it. as rust may 
appear in a niKht. Tlie fact that ttie 
room is heated by a stove just outside 
of it will probably aecount for the rust. 
H^ tlio chances are that after the usual 
cooling of a fire over night Its heating 
in The morning would l>e likely to cause 
condensation on the metal, arid rust 
would immediately appear. Do not use 
oil or any greasy substance to remove 
it. It will pralMibfy not do any harm 
uidess it causes the strings to break, in 
which casp they will hive to be leplaced.

Tlie only important rare to be given a 
piano is to keep it in an even, dry teni

To live with your nerves at highest 
tension— keyed to high C all the time- 
is to court nervous debility and all its 
attendant evils, such as sleeplessness, 
impaired vigor, exhaustion, nervous 
dyspepsia, neuralgia, bloodlessness and 
melancholy. Not only do we work too 
hard— we play too fast as well. Ex- has Its revenge as sure as poi.son 
kills or Inactlfin weakens. 

If you knew of a remedy, proved by 
experience and tested by science, a 
natural product without evil or sec- 
ondary effects, which builds up the ner- 
vous and muscular systems, enriches 
the blood, restores worn tissues and 
prevents waste, would you not use it? 
There is just such a remedy and Its 
virtues have been known to savages 
for hundreds of years. The West Afri- 
can Kola nut is the gift of kindly 
nature and in Dr. Charcot's Kola Ner- 
vine Tablets its full strength is applied 
in the best manner — none of it is lost. 

The following is from Boston, dated 
Sept. 17: 

During the past winter and spring I 
suffered much with malarial fever and 
dysentry, and was reduced in weight 
from 180 to 119 pounds. The dysentry 
remained with me until less than two 
months ago, when it left me almost a 
physical wreck. I commenced taking 
Dr. Charcots' Kola Nervine Tablets to 
build me up, and the result far surpass- 
es my best expectations. I am so rapid- 
ly improving in flesh and strength that 
my friends are asking what and where 
I am eating. I am happy to say that 
I owe my present condition to Kola 
Nervine Tablets. Wishing you the 
merited success that you deserve, I 
remain very thankfully vours,

Superior Council Will Likely 
Start Criminal Proceedings. 

Resolutions were adopted last night 
by the city council of Superior order- 
ing the city attorney and committee of 
aldermen to Investigate the condition 
of the Superior National bank, the 
Douglas County bank and the Bank of 
South Superior with a view of starting 
criminal prosecutions against the offi- 
cers. This was done because the city 
lost a large amount by the failure of 

It will be remembered that last Fri- 
day, to show their faith in the State 
bank's solvency, Dahl & Peterson, tht- 
grain firm, made a deposit in that bank. 
They must have become uneasy upon 
the bank's closing, for yesterday they 
brought suit against A. D. Davidson, 
the as.signee, to recover the amount of 
their deposit, and Judge Morris ren- 
dered judgment In their favor. 

Tn their complaint Dahl & Peterson 
sav that Davidson has In his possession 
$1563.28 tn currency, of which they are 
owners and which Davidson refused 
to give up. It is alleged that the lirm 
deposlte<l two checks In the bank Fri- 
day afternoon between 2:45 and :; 
oclock, and that when the officials of 
the bank received the money, 
the bank was insolvent and they knew 
it though the plaintiffs did not. At 
3 o'clock It closed Its doors and did not 
reopen again for business. 

The bank officials knowing the bank 
to be Insolvent, kept money which they 
received from collecting the two checks 
In a separate envelope with plaintiff's 
name upon It. Saturday the bank made 
an assignment to Davidson, and though 
he has been asked for the money he 
would not give it up. Judgment was 
asked for the Immediate delivery of the 
money. Blllson, Congdon & Dickinson 
brought the suit. 

Davidson's answer, filed by Schmidt, 
Reynolds & Mitchell, did not set up 
much of a defense. It alleges that at 

tho. tim(i of rereivlne Dahl & Peterson's h.^l a it»it,v ^w. -^ — 

deposU the bank was not Insolvent the banks alleged to be due to reckless 
ueposu inf u ^ ^ ^^^ =' • and negligent management; also be- 

cause It Is claimed that a large amount 
of deposits were loaned to persons and 
concerns notoriously Insolvent, and be- 
cause. It Is asserted, the Superior Na- 
tional bank held back from publication 
its last report, showing that it was in- 
solvent, for a period of twelve days 
during which it received all deposits

at 2 o'clock this afternoon at Stewart's 
undertaking establishment. The Jury 
was composed of H. A. Lundberg, Harry 
F. Totman, E. F. Mitchell, Paul Sharvy, 
Henry Truelsen and A. H. Brocklehurst. 
Coroner Eklund showed the body of the 
dead boy to the jury and the examina- 
tion began. Young Bellinger listened to 
the testimony without shoAving any emo- 

David Wheaton, 816 West Fourth 
street, was the first witness called. He 
had been on his way to the library with 
a book and had stopped to talk with the 
boys about his brother being hurt several 
weeks previous. Pavid heard nothing 
said before the shotiwas fired. Bert Bel- 
linger was swinging the gun back and 
forth when it went off. Witness was 
sure there was no hard feeling between 
the boys. 

Then Mrs. Lizzie M. Hoyth took the 
stand. It was in front of her house that 
the accident occurred. She was looking 
from the window and saw the shooting. 
She thought the rifle was only an air 
gun and did not realize the accident. 
Rert made several efforts to raise the 
wounded lad. 

Leon Clark* who lives at 732 East Third 
.street, saw the accident through the win- 
dow. He saw Bert swinging 
the gun and .saw it go off. 
He ran out and heard Bert ask 
Johnny, "Where did it strike you?" To 
this he replied "Never you mind." Then 
Johnny fell to the ground and a man 
picked him up and carried him into a 
butcher shop. Afterwards he was taken 
up stairs. The boys were talking loudly 
before the accident, but did not seem to 
be quarrelling, 

Lee Swan, living at 413 Seventh avenue 
east, had returned from school and 
.saw Bert BelHnger do the .shooting. Bert 
.'ihot at an Irish setter dog. Then he re- 
loa«ied the gun and started swinging It 
back and forth. Johnny was standing 
light in front of the gun when it went 
off. Bert was merely "fooling" with the 
gun. The boy who was shot said "Oh." 
and then Bert said "Where did it hit 
you?" and the boy .said "Never you 
mind." The cartridge was a 22 short. 
There was no quarrel. 


Assignee Davidson Thinks the 
City Too Hasty. 

Treasurer Voss today made a demand 
on the State bank for the n,mount of the 
city's deposit, $3021.86, as directed by the 
council. Of course he did not receive 
the money. Assignee Davidson said 
that he considered the action of the 
council too hasty and said if the city 
pressed its claim the bank would have 
to push its debtors who are business 
men and might thus cause failures 
where a little less haste and some len- 
iency might prevent such calamity. He 
will arrange a meeting with the council 
and endeavor to make the aldermen 
see it in that way. 

St Paul. Oct. 23.— A Duluth corres- 
pondent of some of the morning papers 
has sent dfiwn a statement to the effect 
that the deposit of $28,000 state funds 
in the State bank of that city (Duluth), 
recently assigned, was protected by a 
bond of only J19.000. As a matter of 
fact the deposit is protected by a bond 
of $150,000 signed by Harold Thorson, 
of St Paul; M. O. Hall, Nels Hall 
Roger S. Munger, Morris Thomas and 
Charles White, of Duluth, and A. J. 
Davidson, of Little Falls. The bonds- 
men are perfectly good and the state 
will lose nothing.

Ran Over a Boy. 

John Ostquist, a 13-year-old boy. living 
on New street, was knocked down and 
badly bruised on Superior street, near 
Second avenue west, about 10 o'clock 
this morning, by a lumber wagon driven 
by Frank Roscoe and John Callahan, 
two Hermantown farmers. After the 
boy was struck the men drove on with- 
out stopping, and were arrested on Mich- 
igan street after a chase by Officer Hock- 
ing The injured lad was removed to 
St. Luke's hospital, where he was re- 
ported as doing well at 3 o'clock this 

Duluth Gambler Roped Him In 
Before He Left. 

It is fast becoming known that ! 
Charles H. Stuckey, the defaulting . 
State bank cashier, was fleeced out of 
a large sum just before his flight and a j 
well known Duluth gambler is the man 
who led him into the trap. A Chicago 
combination came here a few months 
ago and tried to work Stuckey into 
what is known as the "last turn" scheme 
in faro. It is a sharp dodge and catches } 
old timers, but a friend warned Stuckey 
and they did not catch him. 

The Duluth gambler, a man who has 
been around here for some time finally 
worked Stuckey into it. The game is 
worked in this way. One of the gamb- 
lers, he who deals the game— approach- 
es the victim, and represents himself 
as sore at the others and wants to 
throw them. He agrees to throw the 
bank roll to the victim. It will only re- 
quire about $2000 of the latter's money 
and that only for one night and they 
will make three times that amount, 
says he to his victim. 

Well, Stuckey was caught and the 
night before he left went against the 
game. It cost him $2800. Of this 
amount $2000 was in cash and for $800 
he gave his paper. The next night he 

The stoi-y is becoming quite well 
known and it is more than probable 
will result in driving the gambler who 
worked the deal, out of the city. 

It lies in a small box in a small office 
in the quiet town of Louth, and there it 
has lain since the la.«t of the Jacksons 
died. Tenneyson himself never saw it 
after he .'ind his brother Charles parted 
with it to the publisher, says the Bostton 
Record. . , 

Once OT- twice in the course of the year 
the relic is drawn forth. Then it is ro- 
He-iouslv returned to its resting place, llie 
box i.s 'locked, and for a further period 
the manuscript of the "Poems of 'Two 
Brothers" is concealed from mortal ken. 
From a printer's point of view the copy 
i.« decidedly poor. Not only is it backed, 
but several pages are disfigured by rude 
scliool boy sketches, while the corrections 
are numerous and not neatly made. On 
some pages whole verses havo 'bt^en 
struck out bv heavy black lines radiatJiiig 
in all directions. There i.s consideirable 
"overrunning," and as many verses as 
possible are crushed into each page. Lvi- 
dentlv the voung Tennysons were not 
too well supplied with paper. 

Sometimes the lines are written both 
downward and crosswise, and on one 
small folio the ingenious writer has man- 
aged to crowd no fewer than ninety-one 
lines or the whole of the poem "Re- 
morse," and a six line verse of the pre- 
ceding poeon. The credit of this re- 
msir'kable (ai*ie\^em'e«nt is supposfcHl to 
belong to Alfred. ^ ^. . _ 

It was originally the intention of the 
authors io allow their initials. •'C. T. 
and "A. T.," to appear on the title page 
and at the end of the brief preface. But 
perhaps thev feared that "searching 
microscope of scrutiny" of which they 
speak in the introductoiT stanzas. At all 
events, while the printer was prepar^ing 
the book for publication, ho received a 
note reminding him that it was "no part 
of the agreement" that their initials 
should be u.sed.aiid they therefore wished 
to delete them. " as it will not as.sist 
the sale of the lx>ok any more than if 
there were no Initials at all." Probably 
Mr. Jackson thought so, too. Anyhow, 
he raised no objection, and when the 
book was issued It was left to rumor 
alone to declare who the "Two Brothers 

The contract with the printer was that 
the authors should receive $oO for the 
copvright of their poems, and this sum 
ha.s' always been stated to have been the 
actual amount paid. In a letter of ac- 
ceptance the brothers remarked that they 
did not "consider the amount offered too 
high a price." Nevertheless, they closed 
with the terms. Mr. Jacobson is said to 
have afti-rward increased the sum to $100. 

A good copy of the book has been 
known to fetch $.'.00.

Buffalo, Oct. ::4.— The world's record 
for railrcad speed over a great distance

New American Liner St. Louis 
is Delayed. 

London, Oct. 24. — The American line 
steamer St. Louis, Capt. Randle, which 
sailed from New York Oct. 16, foi- 
Southampton, passed Prawle Point this 
morniiig' and signalled that she had lost 
her rudder. She asked for two tugs 
to meet her outside the Needles, to as- 
sist her to port. 

The St. Louis on her return trip to 
Niw York, presuming her ruddei- can be 
repaired in time, will take among her 
passengers Mr. Bruci Ismay, Congress- 
jnan Charles A. Boutelle, of Maine, Ad- 
miral Luce, U. S. N., and Sir Alfred 
Moloney, governor of British Hondruas. 
who is accompanied by Lady Moloney. 

San Francisco Said to be Out 
of the Race. 

New York, Oct. 24.^Following the 
conference last night which resulted in 
the issuing of the call for the meeting 
of the Republican national committee 
on December 10, there was a dinner at 
the Brunsv.ick, to wiiich Chairman 
Carter, Gen. Clarkson and T. C. Piatt 
sat dowuv 

It is alleged that^ it was decided at 
this dinner, so far as the will of three 
men may decide it that the National 
Republican convention will be held 
either in Chicago or Pittsburg, and 
probably on June 10. It was said that 
seventeen members of the national com- 
mittee had expressed a preference for 
San Francisco, as the convention city, 
while twenty-five votes are necessary 
to a choice. San Francisco, it was al- 
leged, cannot obtain the i-equisite eight 
additional votes. 


Due to Minister DeLome's 

Washington, < )cl. 24.— li has been du*^- 
to the activity of Mr. Depuy De Lome, 
the Spanish representative in Washing- 
ton, that the large band of Culjans, 
charged in Delaware with being lilibus- 
terers, have been apprehended in one of 
the Bahama islands. Brief word of th" 
capture has already Ijeen received here- 
tofore, and has now been confirmed by 
official advices. 

iSince the acquittal at Wilmington, 
Del., of the Cubans chargtd with being 
filibustereis. the minister has not lost 
track of the mt;n. While the Jury found 
tht-m guiltless, the minister was satis- 
fied that they intended to conduct an 
expcidition to Cuba. He received con- 
stant reports of their movements, but 
took no step toward their apprehensi<jn 
until they reached one of the Bahama 
islands and w-ere under the jurisdiction 
of the British authorities. 

IThe latter were quick to act, and as no 
British war vcs.sel was at the point of 
Cuban rendezvous, a ship was ordered 
to proceed from Jamaica. The capture 
was effected without delay and the 
prisoners taken to Nassua. where they 
will be tried by the British. The impres- 
.sion among officials here is that the su.=- 
pects will be dealt with by the British 
authorities in a summary way. The cap- 
ture is regarded as one of the most im- 
portant thus far made. 


Two Killed and Several Others 

Altoona, Pa., Oct. 24.— A disastrous 
wreck occurred on the Pennsylvania road

witlr a large amount of mail matter were 
burned up. Passenger trains are run- 
ning by way of the Northern Central and

Yankton, S. D., Oct. 24.— The decree of 
divorce has been granted in the case of 
Mrs. Mabel W. Yznaga against Fer-

complaint alleged desertion of the plain- 
tiff by the defendant on Feb. 5, 1894. 
and asked for a reasonable alimony and 
the expenses of the suit. The defendant 
made no contest, but appeared by attor- 
ney so a.^ to render the decree as valid 
to him as to her. All cAidence in the 
case was in the form of depositions from 
New York in corroboration of her com- 
plaint. There is nothing in the decree 
relative to property rights, it being under- 
stood that this matter has been arranged 
between the parties to their mutual sat-

San Francisco Post: The usual little 
game of poker was running at Schv-ein- 
magen's au'i the players were all bettini;: 
very freely. An unusuall.v large jackpot 
was in the center of the table and as the 
cards were l3«ing dealt Schweinmagen re- 

"Yell, shentlemans, I guess I win dis 

It was duly opened and there was a 
raise or two all tht^ v.aj- arooind. Schwein- 
magen drew one card, another player 
drew two and nvo stocd pat. The bet- 
ting was brisk and tvtry time it came 
around to Schweinmagen he raised. Sud- 
fienly his 4-year-o'd l>oy txelaimed: 

"Oh, look! I'apa's got four cards all 

"t^iiut up your mouth!" roared Schwein- 
magen, but it was too late. None of the 
other players would call his last raise. 
Schweinmageii took the boy upstairs. He 
returned in five minutes, red in the face, 
ar.d resumed the game with the remark: 

"You bet, I sphank dot poy goot!" 

Half an hour later, when all were try- 
ing to win a big pot, t^ehweinmagen's 6- 
year-old girl ixolaimed: 

"Papa has >;«t four cartlsi all just alike." 

Again everyone dropped their hands. 
Schweinmagen pocketed the cash and tlie 
G-year-cId girl was led upstairs. 

When, a few minutes later, the grocer's 
8-year-old son said: "r'apa has got four 
all alike," one of the playoi-s studied his 
hand an unusually long time, scratched 
Ills head, .studied the grocer's face and 
then called. 

"What have you got?" he demanded. 

"Wliat haf you got? ' 

"I called. Sliow down your hand." 

.Schweinmagen spread out a pair of

upstairs, but whipped him on the spot 
for lying.

Some joys of life make me most sad, 
When I think of how I miss 'em; 

The girls I want to kiss arc those 
Who don't want me to kiss 'em. 


Erie Messenger: A maiden writes: 
"Can vou tell me how to change the color 
of my hair, which all the young men tell 
me Is red?" 

Certainly we can. Get rich; they will 
then call it golden or auburn. 

"What bothers most people who think 
anything about the subject," said Kear- 
ney P. Kpcc-dy, a high diver, in the New 
York Herald, who l>egan his public 
career liy jumping head first from the 
St. l^uis bridge four or five years ago, 
"is how a dive of tifty or sixty feet can 
be made into a tank of thirty-six inches 
of water. You see they confuse diving 
witli liridgo jumping — quite a different 
thing. Bridge jumpers are neither jump- 
ers nor divers— they're droppers: that is, 
they reach the lower rods of the bridge 
truss and drop feen foremost into the 
water. Tli*> trick is to maintain the per- 
pendicular. They must have plenty of 
water under them, too. The high diver, 
as you have seen, makes a clear dive, 
head first, just as a boy does from a 
springboard in swimmin.g. 1 do it in 
very siiallow water. 1 weigh, stripped, 
ISO "pounds, and never do any training. 
I have been diving from the top of a 
circus tent all summer into a tank but 
seven feet wide and into water but three 
feel deep. The shallow water dive is 
possible from the same principle that a 
cannon or rifie shot moi-ts the most resis- 
tance th( more powerful the impact. You 
see, I give my bo<ly and head a slight 
inclination ui>ward at the instant 1 strike 
the water, which causes me to pop out 
as a board would do or an oar on the 
feather. I learned this trick in the St. 
Louis natatorium when a boy, i)ractic- 
ing in s-hallow water and from a greater 
height. Then there is a certain elas- 
ticity in the water known to the high 
ddver, but the trick is in the strike a'ld , 
turn, for water will break bones and: 
crush chests, as many a man knows." i

London. Oct. 24.— Editor W. T. 
has a long artlele this afternoon 
Westminster Gazette on "Monroeism." 
during the course of which he says: 
• Englisluntn would do well not to be- 
little the significance of the evolution of 
American sentiment on the Venezuelan 
<luestioii. It must be taken with the 
usual discount. It is serious. Its gi-av- 
ity lonsists in two facts, neither of 
which have anything to do with the 
merits of the question in dispute. In the 
tlrst place, for the first time since the 
civil war. the Americans have built a 
navy of which they have some

will usf against somebody. 

"In thf .-second place, it is equally sig- 
nlllcant that the American papers as- 
sutf thf I'nited Statf.-s that the Monri>e 
doctrtuf has been infurmally adopted as 
a national faith by the American peo- 
ple, and the dispatch sent to the New 
Yurk World tr^'f erring to the reported 
Bayard-Salisbury interview), probably 
has :i basis of truth. 

"Oonsldering the disreputable character 
of the Venezuelan government, it seems

Cut Rates. 

Sioux Falls. S. D.. Oct. 24.— The wheat 
war here, which has been on for the past 
week to the profit of the farmers, is get- 
ting more interesting daily. There have 
bten a number of representatives of the 
railroatJs running into Sioux Falls here, 
and it Is rumored that they are looking 
into the matter to see why it is the 
Northwestern Elevator company on the 
Great Northern road gets about 75 per 
cent of all the wheat marketed here. 

It is reported that the Great 
Northern road has cut the Minneapolis 
rate in two for the benefit of the North- 
western Elevator people, and that If this 
can be ascertaine<l to be correct, the 
other roads will likely cut their freight 
rates and the war will be hotter than 
ever. At one time Tuesday there were 
twenty-eight loads of wheat In line wait- 
ing for a chance to unload at the North- 
western elevator, the last man being 
compelled to wait five hours.

■St. Paul, Oct. 24.— A Fargo, N. D.. spe, 
clal says: In the district court yester- 
day some of the old E. A. Shealy Mears 
cases were argued in an effort to have 
them removed to the United States court. 
During the argument it was alleged that 
Mears had sent out a number of circulars 
containing matter derogatory to Judge 
McConnell and Receiver Guptill. Judge 
McConnell. therefore, L«.sued a bench 
warrant and had Mears arrested for con- 
tempt of court. 


London, Oct. 24. — There were eleven 
degrees of frost in London this morn- 
ing, and the cold was very severe In the 
north. Snow fell in Lanca.shlre and 
other points throughout the country.

spondent at Foo Chow sends the follow-

Cheng, on the morning of Oct. 17. Seven 
of the murderers were executed at the 
south gate of the city. All the members 
of the commission were present with the 
exception of Capt. Newell and Rev. W. 

The scene was a gruesome one, only 
one head being severed at the first blow, 
the others being chopped, and the unfoi- 
tunate wretches left to die. The exe- 
cutions took place quite suddenly, the 
Tao Tai on the previous day announcing 
that he had received a telegram from the 
viceroy authorizing the exec^utlons. Since 
then the names of sixteen more criminals 
have been communicated to the viceroy 
for execution. 

The Mohammedan rebels in Kangau 
are increasing In strength. The soldiers 
sent to quell the rebellion are joining 
the rebels. The Molln rebels are rumored 
to be dispersing, but there is no authen-

marauders in Southwest Kwang Tung 
;iro still holding their own.

Its excellence is due to its presenting

dispelling colds, headaches and fevers 
and permanently curing ctmstipatiou.

Considerable Feeling About the 
Claims of England. 

Seattle, Oct. 25.— The agitation of the 
.Alaska boundary question has been 
taken up bodily by the American 
dents of Juneau, and a move Is 
being made to form a boundary 
at that place to keep the people and the 
government fully alive to the danger 
of losing the invaluable Yukcjn mines. 
As already indicated, the war cry "ten 
marine leagues or light" is being sound- 
ed. The situation is given by the edi- 
tor of the Alaska Mining Record, now 
in this city. 

"If England can effect an entrance t<> 
the Yukon country." he said, "she will 
be satisfied, and she hopes to accomplish 
that object by securing Dyea inlet as 
a port of entry. She will also try to ob- 
tain Annette Island, but will waive all 
other claims in order to control the 
rich mines of the North. She would 
undoubtedly relinquish all claims to the 
rest of the territory to gain her end. 
and if she succeeds we might us well 
give up any claim on Alaska. " 

W. Otis Smith, editor of the Alaskan, 
published at Sitka, is In the city. 
He says: "All England wants is a sea- 
port at the entrance to the Youkon 
country and she has raised this pre- 
tended claim on the southern country 
su that she may figure in the eyes of 
the world as magnanimous. She will 
forego the claim if the United States 
will admit the claims she Is setting up 
In the Chllcat country and let her have 
a seaport giving to the Yukon. 
But the boundary has long been 
lished. and I do not see why we 
submit anything to arbitration." 

Washington. Oct. 24.— The death of 
Senator Charles H. Van Wyck, of Ne- 
braska, i.s expected befoie tomorrow 
morning, and may come at any moment. 
At 11 o'clock this morning he was rapidly 
sinking, and It was thought he might die 
within a few hours. Yesterday he showed 
signs of recovery from Monday's stroke 
of paralysis, but during the night a 
change for the worse occurred, and It be- 
came evident that his chance of surviv- 
ing the attack was very slim. 


"The Christian religion is fitted for 
univer.^al supremacy. It is not tlieoiy of 
wlileh I am speaking now. It is of a 
thing which has been proven and found 
true. We today in the Anglo-Saxon race 
are an example of what the Christian re- 
ligion can do for the world. IL has lifted 
oiu- foivfatliers from their ancient i)l;u'e 
In the mire and clay of barbarism until 
today the Church of Christ controls two- 
thinis of the civilized worhl. Rulers 
bow their knee to the King of Kings, 
by the grace of (Jod. 

"Then the question is naturally sug- 
gested: Whv may the time not come 
when Christianity shall fall away and 
die?. The answer is indisputable. The 
Chrl.stlan religion Is calculattMj If any re- 
ligion is to be the tinal and supreme re- 
ligion in the world. The religion to 
succeed must be religion to satisly the 
wants and needs of the human heart. 
Every man and every people has a con- 
ception of God. They may call the Su- 
preme being by dlflerent names but they 
.ill have the same feeling of the exist- 
ence of an omnipotent creator. 

" 'Our Father.' If 1 were asked to con- 
dense the Bible into two words, those 
are the two 1 would use. But even» 
words cai no' give a clear conception «»f 
the one who gave his only begotten son 
that we might have everlasting life. Tlie 
Idea of a mediator Is instructive. Ever.\- 
savage tribe has a medicine man who i.^ 
supposed to be at least a little nearei- 
(Jod than his people. You will find a 
priesthood eveiTWhi*i-e but always there 
is an idea of a mediator. Christianity 
has one mediator in Christ— the Lord 
Jesus Christ. Until there c(mies some re- 
ligion with a better mediator, you will 
tind no religion as acceptable to the heart ius Christianity. We have 
a sacrifice for sins in Christ, He is a 
propitiation for one wrong doing. Until 
some better and greater mediator can 
arise Christianity is paramount. Let 
me call your attention to a significant 
fact. Every good' thing in other re- 
ligions is incorporated in (Thiistlanity. 
"It is now nearly nineteen centuries 
since our teacher taught. He not only 
gatheretl up the truths of the past but 
l)Ut he beggared the future. The princi- 
ples of life handed down by the master 
absolutely cover every department of 
human existence and satisfy every want 
of the human heart. We measure every 
religion by its ideal. The C?hristian ideal 
is one that will never be surpassed. 'Be 
ye perfect even a.s your father in heaven 
is perfect.' We are going on to tliat per- 
fection. The power of God himself Is 
given us to attain our end. The signs of 
the times indieate the coming supremacy 
of the Christian religion in the world. 

"This is an hour of inspiration and con- 
secration. We are not fight In:; in a 1 i?ing 
battle. 1 began with an allusion to the 
World's Parliment rf Religion?. Let me 
close with another. While the people 
waited in breathless suspense for the 
words of dismissal from the leader out 
over the great audience there rolled thai 
great chorus of the Messiah: 'He shall 
reign forever and forever. Hallelujah:' 
Then out they went with glorious 
words ringing in their eai-s. Do you go 
home with these words in your hearts 
and in your minds: "For he shall reign 
rorever and forever.' 

At the conclusion ()f Dr. Hughes' re- 
marks President Hunt said: "We have 
come to that last hour— the brightest and 
best of the convention— the hour that 
promises the I.c-st result of any hour. It 
is tha hour of consecration." 

Then one by one the delegates from 
the different unions and districts,' 
and solemnly consecrated themselves to 
the cause of Christ each with some ap- 
propriate sentiment or quotation fran 
the Scriptures, Siiakopee, Albert Lea, St. 
Cloud, La Vergne, West Superior, Fergus 
F;'lls, Hennepin, Epworth league of Du- 
luth, Mlnnctonka, Mankato, Faribault, 
Tracy. Le Sueur, Winona, Glencoe, 
Hutchinson, Morris, Willow River and 
Pine City all were called upon. Then the 
St. I'aul and .Miimcapolis, who occupied 
opposite galleries, arose for conseeration. 
St. Paul sang "Just As I -\m Without 
One Plea," and Minneapolis sang "Near- 
er My God to Thee." Then there was a 
great waving of handkerchiefs, the 
Endeavorer salute and the Twin Cities 
united In the common sentiment: 
Blest be the tie that binds 
Our hearts in common love, 
The fellowship of kindred souls 
Is like to thajt above. 
Tlu> great audience stood while Rev. 
C. H. Patton. of Duluth, delivered the 
eliising consecration prayer and then 
filed out singing: "<lod He With You 
Till We Meet Again." The ninth annu \1 
convention of the Minnesota ]<:n<leavor- 
ers. the largest and most successful on 
record, was over.

since been unknown. The wife of Al-

has been well known in West Duluth for

his wife is with Lund, and when it was 
reported to him that Lund had been seen 
in Fargo, he made up his mind to go 
there and investigate. He left yesterday 
afternoon. Atrs. Windblad had sold all 
the household goods, and was to have 
joinetl her husband in Milwaukee, but 
failed to. The outcome of his visit to

They fall on young and old;

And some are dreams of gold.

Some are dreams of the dawn of love. 
And some of the old dead years. 

On rich and poor alike they fall. 

Alike on j'ouiig and old, 
Bringing to slumbering earth their joys

The deeds of mighty men. 
And drooping age shall feel the grace

So ever downward float the dreams 

That are for all and me. 
And there is never mortal man 

Can solve that mystery. 

But ever onward in its course

As though it were a cloud astray —

Ezra Boilers, out In Kansas, held queer

Now, by stisiginess and slaving. Joined to 
note and mortgage-shaving, he had 
made a handsome saving in the sub- 
stance known as "dross." 

At his home in Greenville Center, being 
self-appointed mentor, as he voted 
'lectlojis went or the deuce would be 
to pay; 

In opinions thus pugnacious, and ungra- 
cious as tenacious, very few were so 
audacious as to vote the other way. 

He could tell you to a fraction the effect 
of each transaction in the currency's 
contraction or the gold reserve In 

On, the evils of protection he would dwell 
with deep dejection, while deploring 
the defection of the people from the 

And all sorts of speculators (though a 
friend of agitators and of vote manip- 
ulators) Boilers held himself above; 

But the silver agitation with the gre«n- 
■back's wild Inflation caught his high- 
est adoration and his soul's most 
ardent love. 

"To this creed my faith I pin It. 'Side o' 
greenbacks, gold ain't in it for a soli-

and boast;

"gold-brick" roast.

Wheat was firm today on better cables 
and continued dry weather and while 
prices ruled slightly higher and jvei^' 
steady the advance was not heavy. The 
feature of the Duluth market was the 
large trading in cash stuff. The shippers 
were buying liberally aiid secured 
over 500,000 bus of No. 1 northern to ar- 
rive at 94c premium over the December 
price. The mills took about 75,000 bus at 
Ic premium over December. A bullish 
feature Is noticeable In connection with 
the flour situation. There Is not a mill 
at the head of the lakes that will sell 
another barrel of flour for shipment via 
the lake route this season, as contracts 

already made call for all they can pro- 
duce. Trading In futures was of good 
proportions. December opened V4c up at 
bC%c and ruled stoady until the noon hour 
when It sold up to 57Vic. May started at 
61c, soon advanced to 61%c, and sold up 
lare to the split Gl%®%c. The cloiw was 
%c higher than yesterday for cash and 
iwo higher for futures. Barley sold by 
sample at 27c to 30c. Flax was fairly 
active, opening at 90c and selling up to 

Chicago Inspected Into store 428 cars, 
compared with 181 cars on the previous 
day of the year before. The receipts at 
Minneapolis and Duluth were 11S7 oars, 
compared wlfh 950 a year ago. Last year 
the total receipts at all the primary mar- 
kets summed up 73S.00O bus, whereas 
Minneapolis and Duluth alone got 798,000 
bus today. The seaboard clearances for 
the day only amounted to 121,00o bus In 
wheat and tlour together: only 35,000 bus 
of the total being in the shape of wheat. 
The Cincinnati Price Current remarked 
upon the drought and said there was a 
betterment of the situation in tlie region 
affected by it. While the dry weather 
has been helpful In as much as it re- 
strained the selling ardor of the bears, 
and probably kept some holders of long 
wheat from selling out on the soft spots. 
as they might have done and might have 
been Inclined to do, but very little has 
been bought On the strength of the dry 
weather, the bulls recognizing the danger 
of ijasing operations on a condition so 
liable to sudden change. The closing 
prices at Duluth were as follows: 

Wheat— No. 1 hard cash, 59V2c: October,

Look at his pretty face for just one min- 
His braided frock and daintily buttoned 
His firm-shut hand, the favorite plaything 
In It, 
Then tell me mothers, was it not hard 
to lose. 
And miss him from my side, 
My little boy that died? 

How many another boy, as dear and 
His father's hopes, his mother's one de- 
Slips through strange sickness, all fear 
And lives a long, long life in parent's 
Mine was so short a pride. 
And then— he died. 

I see him rocking on his wooden charger. 
I hear him pattering through the house 
all day, 
I watch his great blue eyes grow large 
and larger. 
Listening to stories, whether grave or 
Told at the bright fireside. 
So dark now since he died. 

But yet I often think my boy Is living. 

As living as many other children are; 
When good-night kisses I around am giv- 
I keep one for him, though he Is so far; 
Can a mere grave divide 
Me from him— though he died? 

.So, while I come and plant it o'er with 
(Nothing but childish daisies all year 
Continually God's hand the curtain raises. 
And I can hear the meri^ voices sound. 
And feel him at my side. 
My little boy that died. 

— Miss Muloch.

Chicago, Oct. 24.— At last we have got 
out of the rut into which the wheat 
market had fallen during the past few 
days. Early cable news was of an en- 
couraging nature and late cables re- 
sponded to our firmness. The weather 
map showed little rain In one or two 
places, but not enough to be of conse- 
quence, and reports of extreme dryness 
and probably damage were about as plen- 
tiful as yesterday. Some of these reports 
are evidently extreme, but If we don't 
get rains pretty soon where needed, it 
will look very unfavorable for the grow- 
ing wheat. Export takings were again 
quite a factor, forty-one loads being re- 
ported at New York and room was en- 
gaged for 600,000 bus via Gladstone and 
Buffalo to Liverpool. 

Cash corn and oats were again In ac- 
tive denvand and olosed dtrong. Re-

The state bank examiner has issued 
a statement giving a comparison be- 
tween the condition of the state and 
national banks of Minnesota at the 
close of business on July 12, 1893, and 
on July 11. 1895, and it shows a very 
marked improvement in the condition 
uf the banks during the past two years. 
The increase in the amount of deposits 
Is especially noteworthy and tiie in- 
crease of confidence may be accredited 
in a lar^re measure to the new banking 
law, wiiich throws additional safe- 
guards around funds placed in the 
care ot banks. It shows that the banks 
have collected on notes during the past 
two years, $5,834,378.18. The national 
banks have increased their circulation 
by 545,770.92, and bought United States 
bonds to the amount of $126,207.65. 

The amount of cash on. hand and duy 
from other banks is $2,658,662.37 larger 
than two years ago, and the real estate 
account has increased $34"?,7S4.35. Capi- 
tal, surplus and undivided profits have 
decreased $1,657,618.36. while the de- 
posits have increased in the very tidy 
sum of $3,643,048.50. The reduction in 
the capital, surplus and undivided pro- 
fits is due to the fact that many banks 
found they were carrying a larger capi- 
tal than was needed in their business, 
and have reduced it, using the funds 
to invest in other enterprises, which 
will assist in developing tlie resources 
of the state. During the financial dis- 
tress of 1893 the banks were obliged to 
rediscount and loan large amounts to 
meet the demand for money. July 12, 
1S93, the total rediscounts and bills pay- 
able reached the sum of $4,448,324.09. 
During the past two years the banks 
have reduced this sum by $3,415,266.82, 
leaving only $1,033,057.27, July H. of this 

These figures relate to the condition 
of the banks three months ago, and 
there is every reason to believe that 
a statement of their condition today, 
if it could be obtained, would make a 
still better showing. The banks' state- 
ments are a very good index of the con- 
dition of business generally, and this 
favorable showing may be correctly 
interpreted to mean that prosperity is 
steadily returning to the country. 

be regained. It Is made certain by 
these statistics that strikes and lock- 
outs form loo costly a method of set- 
tling labor disputes and that they 
should not be resorted to except as the 
la>j£ resort, when ail other efforts to se- 
cure a settlement of differences have 
failed. If employer.: and employe'^ 
eould be Induced to "ubmit all their 
disputes to arbitration ihe heavy

It is announced ti>day tJiat the Republi- 
> iu natii'nal committee will meot in 
NVashingti>n on Die. 10 to designate the 
time and place for holding the national 
convention in 1S96. When this work has 
hei-n performed the work of the cam- 
paign for the presidential nomination 
will be t>pened in earnest. It is expecteil 
tliat the convention will be held early in 
the year, probably not later than the 
lit.-.: week in June. The idea of a short 
campaign has nut obtained much popu- 
larity with those who have the calling 
of the conventions, nor have the other 
jiromlnent men of the party given it 
nuKh endorsement. The Chicago Tlmes- 
lier:i!d some time ago tried to create a 
srMitimi lit iii favor of a short campaign, 
and publi.<shed lnter\'iews with many 
irotninent people subscribing to its idea. 
It wouKl have been easy, however, to 
have many more interviews from equally 
prominent men favoring a long cam- 

It is stated that within a fortnight 
Chairman Carter has talkeid with Clark- 
son, of Iowa; Campbell, of Illinois; Ho- 
bart. of 'New Jersey; Manley, of Maine; 
Cheney, of New Hampshire; Martin, of 
Pennsylvania; Crane, of Massachust-tts, 
and Hahn, of Ohio. These members of 
the committer have without exception 
advised him to have the call issued for 
llate in May or early in June. They rep- 
resent all shades of presidential prefer- 
ences, so that question is not entering 
into it at all. Governor McKinleys 
friends are just as anxious as the others 
for an early convention. Senator Quay 
recently asked a friend, "Where does 
'this fool talk of a short cam.paign and a 
Septtmber convention come from?" His 
query reflected the opinion of other lead- 
ers who have had anything to do with 
the management of national campaigns. 
For many years neither political party 
has had more than a CO-day campaign, 
generally it has been less than forty 
days. All there is of the campaign so 
far as the public is concerned is the 
speaking which usually begins Sept. 10 
or 15. The national committee needs at 
kas't two months' time before that to or- 
ganize the campaign. The country is 
3000 miles wide with 100,000 voting pre- 
cincts or m.ore, and it takes a long while 
to organize so that every voter in the 
l?.nd will be reached. It is/ the short cam- 
paign in which money is both wasted 
and spent corruptly. In the long cam- 
paign intelligent work and fair and 
honest organization can be accom- 

The Chicago Inter-Ocean points out 
tliat in forty years the Republicans have 
Ine vtr gone more than three or four days 
boyond the middle of June for holding 
their national conventions. Oftener it 
has been the earlier part of that month 
of roses. The convention which nom- 
inated Fremont met at Philadelphia 
June 17, 1856. Lincoln was nominated 
in Chicago by the convention which met 
May 16, 1860, and the Baltimore conven- 
tion whicli renominated him in 1864 met 
June 7. Gen. Grant's first nomination 
was made at Chicago May 20, 186S. He 
was named a second time at Philadel- 
phia June 5, 1872. The convention which 
named Hayes met at Cincinnati Juno 14. 
1876. The famous Chicago convention 
which made John Sherman bilious for 
the rest of his life by nominating Gar- 
field met June 2, 1880. Four years later 
the convention which nominated Blaine 
met in Chicago June 3. Gen. Harrison 
was nominated by the convention which 
met in Chicago June 19, 1888. He was 
renominated by the convention which 
met at Minneapolis on June 7, 1892. 


Strong arguments for the extension 
of the idea of arbitrating disputes be- 
tween employers and employes are fur- 
nished by the figures contained in the 
tenth cinnual report of the federal labor 
bureau now being issued by Commis- 
sioner Carroll D. Wright. In this re- 
port, Mr. Wright continues the investi- 
gation of strikes and lockouts whicli 
was begun a number of years ago and 
brings it down to July 1, 1894, which 
is very close to date, when the difficul- 
ties of gathering such data are taken 
into consideration. According to the 
statistics given in this report, it ap- 
pears that from 1881 to the close of the 
first six months of 1894, there were 14,- 
390 strikes affecting 69,167 establish- 
ments by which 3,714,406 employes were 
throv,-n out of work. In about 45 per 
cent of the establishments the strikes 
were completely successful, in about 12 
per cent partial success was recorded, 
and in the rest the employes failed ut- 

These strikes do not comprehend all 
tiiat occurred but are simply those 
which had considerable duration. 
Strikes which lasted only an hour or 
two, and were the result of personal 
differences are not included in the table. 
The wage loss of employes In thirteen 
years is put at $163,807,866 in strikes. 
and $26,685,516 in lockouts, while em- 
ployers are cfstimatetl to have lost In the 

same time $S2,590,386 in strikes and $12,- 
235,451 In lockouts. 

There is one feature brought out by 
these figures which must attract par- 
ticular attention, and this is that these 
labor disputes resulted in much greater 
loss to the employes than to the employ- 
ers. Those who had the least to lose 
lost the most. The wage earners lost 
wages that can never be recovered while 
the lost business of the capitalists may 

Part 2 of Tile Herald today contain.s a 
full report of the proceedings of the re- 
cent annual convention of the Minnesota 
State Christian Endeavor union, held in 
this city. The Herald gave an extended 
report of the ctmventlon from day to 
day, while it was in session, and it was 
generally conceded by the delegates and 
the public who took an interest in the 
gathering that it was by far the best 
report that was published. In reijponse 
to a desire expressed by the society The 
Herald agreed to present in one edition a 
complete report of the whole convention, 
which would be convenient for referance 
by the delegates who were present and 
would give the Endeavorers throughout 
the entire state, who could not be here, a 
thorough knowledge of the business that 
was transacted and of the many Inter- 
esting papers that were read. Such a 
report will be found in today's paper. 

To those who did not follow the pro- 
ceedings as- reported from day to day did not attend the Interesting s;^s- 
slons of the convention. The Herald 
would commend a reading of this report. 
It will be seen that the work of the 
Christian Endeavor society Is practical 
in its results. It is not engaged in the 
propagation of any dogma or the ad- 
vocacy of any special creed. It Is in- 
terdenominational in its character. It 
seeks to make Christian men and women, 
to make better citizens and secure better 
government. There was no subject be- 
fore this c<mventlon which arouseel so 
much enthusiasm as that of Christian 
citizenship. It was warmly discussed, 
and vigorous addresses iKtre made on 
the various aspects of the subject. The 
duty of all Christians to take a hand in 
framing the laws of the country and to 
discharge the duties of citizenshijt with 
a careful regard for the best interests 
of the communities In which they live 
was emphasized, and It was evident that 
the Christian Endeavorers intend to 
make their Influence felt In political and 
social life as well as within the narrow 
walls of the church. Taking the ground 

that*'rhrlPt was the greatest citizen that 
ever lived, they contend that to mako 
men Christ-like Is to make them good 
citlst^ns. Therefore they seek to In- 
still the Christian principle In every 
breast, confident that when all men be- 
come Christians, bad citizenship will be 
unknown, and with universal Christian 
cilizen!'hip wo will have pure and honer-U 
government of the city, of the state and 
of the lepubllc. 


Tiio Herald's suggestion that a c:ir- 
ni\al with an Ice palace- be held In Du- 
luth diu'lng the I'omlng winter meets 
the appro\al of the business men, who 
inthusiastlially endorse the Idea unel 
arc rt>ady to lend their aid towartls

The New York Sun doubts If there is

and sometimes had grace in their elress. 
It may at tlrst glance seem strange that 
courage should lie helel the quality re-

The official count of the state census 
lust completed shows that the popula- 
tion! of Minnesota is 1,574,910, an Increase 
of 273,084 over the count of 1890. The 
population of St. Louis county Is stated 
to be 78,575, a gain of 33,913 In five years. 
This is a larger gain than is shown by any 
other county in the state. Hennepin and 
Ramsey are the only counties that have 
a greater population than St. Louis. 

The statistics show that with the re- 
vival of business, immigralion has been 
rapidly increasing, and it is predicted 
by those who have given the matter 
careful attention that the arrivals next

history of the country. There will be the

enforcing the laws, if not for more

A young man with a new overcoat 
stood waiting for a car in Endion yester- 
day afternoon. While he waited he leaned 
against the nearest thing at hand, which 
happened to lie a letter box. Pretty soon 
a smell of turpentine greeted his nostrils, 
and he stood erect to see from whence 
it came. As he turned his head his eye 
caught sight of a large splash of brilliant 
red down tiiesideof the sleeve of his over- 
coat. A curse fell from between his 
clenched teeth and dropped with a hiss 
into the lake. 

And no wonder. Our I'ncle Samuel has 
been painting his letter i)oxes. No doubt

is not a pleasant thing to undergo an ex- 
perience like the above and go away 
looking as though one's jugular had been 
cut or to try to mail a letter and get 
one's hands or gloves covered with that 
brilliant red. Uncle Samuel should have 
more sen*e.

Washington, Oct. 24.— There Is much 
regret In official circles, because of the 
probability that the turmoil through 
which Corea has recently passed is 
likely to embarass and possibly dis- 
continue the Corean legation here, 
which has long been one of the most 
pictursque features In diplomatic life 
here\ The legation has received no of- 
ficial advices from the new govern- 
ment, and it is liecoming apparent that 
those in control at Seoul represent the> 
old ideas against intercourse with for- 
eign powers. It was only a few years 
age> they bt'gan their relations with out- 
side countries, and It was regarded as 
an advance toward civilized methods. 

The first legation established was in 
Washington, as the Coreans regarded 
the United States as a country most 
friendly to them. Since then a consu- 
lar agency has l)een opened In London, 
but the United Slates remains the only 
country with a Corean legation. The 
queen, recently assassinated, was 
friendly to these foreign relations, and 
through her Influence the legation here 
was kept In existence. But with her 
death there is i-vidence that old meth- 
ods will be resumed. 

The new minister of foreign affairs 
in Corea is said to be opposed to foreign 
legations and such mediums of com- 
munication with outside countries, and 
this accounts for the fact that the Co- 
rean officials here are receiving no 
word from home.

Fargo. N. D.. Oct. 24.— Mrs. Margaret 
Vidal. who recently securod a divorce 
from Dr. J. W. Vidal, of this city, and 
more recently took the Keelcy cure for 
the morphine habit, has been appointed 
national lecturer of the Keeley league 
for Virginia and North Carolina. She 
is said to be the first lady ever appoint- 
ed to that position. She is especially 
fitted for the woi-k, as she is an eU)-

Some Interesting Statistics 

Presented by Capt. Miller 

Last Evening. 

Worl^ Which Has Been Done 
by the Associated Char- 
ities Explained. 

Larjie Falling Off From Last 
Year in the County Ex- 

The Associated Charities met last 
evening In the Y. M. C. A. parlors. The 
pivsiiU-nt ami secretary were directeil 
lo lall a mettiiii; of the board of diree- 
toi-s and the secretary was instructed 
to notify all the charitable associa- 
tions of the city t«> send delegates ti> 
the nv?eting. L.ast year's delegates 
hold office for another year, and those 
elected this time will hold for two 
yeai-s. Bishop McOolrick was appoint- 
ed delegate to the convention of the 
charitable societies of the state to be 
held at Faribault the last three days 
of this month. 

Capt. J. W. Miller presente<l his re- 
port, containing much interesting mat- 
ter regur.ling the care of the county's 
ixmr. The Associated Charities does 
not give aid itself. I)ut investigates 
.and refers the cases to the county au- 
tlK.rilles. Ill this way a large saving 
has been made, as the following tigures 

The tigures are for the tiist nine 
months in 1J»S>4 and 1895. In lsy4 foi- 
fuel. $SS4 was spent against $546 in lS!»r>. 
a saving of $.',3S; for groceries. $13.1:12 
was spent in 1.S94 and $8188 in 1895. a 
savinK of $r>024; the hospitals cost 
is6:,2 in ism as against $(;:;.o6 in 1895. a 
.saving of $2290. The total saving for the 
first nine months of ls95 over the first 
nine months of 1S94 was $76.JS. 

This means not only that the secre- 
tary of the Associated Charities has 
been vigilant, but it means that there 
is less destitution and that a smaller 
number of people have applied for aid. 
The secretary has investigated 14n 
cases this year, and has received S14 
applications for work, of which los 
Were supplied. 

During the first nine months of this 
year aid has been extended by the 
county to IS^O peop^le. divided among 
nationalities a.s follows: Swedes. 4;".."); 
Norwegians. 222; Danes. 28: Irish, 52: 
Canadians. l'.iS: Americans. 22.1: Scotch. 
11: English. S5: Poles, 204: Italians, :i6: 
CJermans. 210: Icelanders. 15: Finland- 
ers. 80: Austrians, 16; Russians, 44: 
Greek. 1. 

Of this number thirty-five were wid- 
ows, twenty-one were widowers, four- 
teen have be^n desertel. 443 are unmar- 
ried, and 1202 were children. The ave- 
rage ag»^ of tfie adults was 41 years. 
As regards leligion. there are more 
I^utherans by thirty-seven than all 
other denc-niinati«>ns combined. The 
division by sects follows: 

Lutherans, :',14: Catholics, 162: Metho- 
dists. ,33;T?r.ptists, 23; Kpiscopalians. 21: 
Presbyterians. 16: just Protestants. 15; 
Hf*brews. 10: Salvationists, 6; Congre- 
gationalists. 4; Mission. 2; nothing. 25. 

In his report Capt. Miller also explained 
some of the difficulties which have had 
to be met this year. There is always the 
usual number of people who are paupers 
by birth, education and inclination. They 
make begging a study, and follow it 
whether tliey are idle or working. It rc- 
fjuires great vigilance to pi-event imposi- 
tion from these people. The hard times 
have i>rcvented a great many of the 
charitably Inclined from giving as lilier- 
ally as usual, and this has thrown a 
much gre.'iter burden on the county an<l 
Ladies' Relief .society. Capt. Miller 
spoke of the Ladies' Relief society and 
and the systematic work which it accom- 
plishes. At present there is a decided 
improvement in conditions, because the 
market for labor is now good and there 
is little excuse for idleness.

Will Sue a Grand Rapids Editor 
for Libel. 

E. C. Kiley, of the Grand Rapids 
Herald, from whom Executive Agent 
Fullerton, of the fish and game commis- 
sion, some time ago demanded a re- 
traction of some attacks made uon his 
honesty in office, sends out a defi to 
Mr. Fullerton In his paper this week, 
in wliich he accuses Game Warden Mc- 
Laughlin of various kinds of crooked 
dealings, and particularly with look- 
ing for nmose heads and deer heads 
with a view to selling them. Of cou\-se, 
he implies that Mr. Fullerton is back 
of all this, while he is making state- 
ments that no convictions can be se- 
cured in that count.\. In closing he 
declines to retract and intimates that 
the matter cannot be taken into the 
courts too soon. 

Mr. Fullerton said yesterday that 
unless the retraction was made Mr. 
Kiley wt>uld be accommodated.

Jury Finds Bert Bellinger Guilty 
of That. 

The Jun>* empanelled by Coroner Ek- 

lund to determine how IH-year-old 

Johnny Stevenson came to his death met 

yesterday afternoon, and after listening 

to the testimony, rendered the following 

"The said John Suven.son came to his 
death by means of a bullet di.scharged 
fi-om a gun while held in the hands of 
one Bert Bellinger; that said gun was 
disrharged by reason of gross careless- 
ness and inexcusable negligence of the 
said Bert Bellinger. 

■We. the jury, respectfully recommend 
that the proper authorities forthwith 
provide an ordinance prohibiting the 
carrying of firearms and the ownership 
thereof by minors within the city limits. 
Tlie recommendation is especially urged 
because of the tleath of three human 
beings in the city of Duluth during th" 
last eighteen months, resulting from 
criminal with firearms in 
the hands of minors." 

The juiy was cr,nii)osed of H. F. Tot- 
man. Henr>' Truelsen, N. A. Lindeberg, 
-•v. H. Brocklehurst, E. F, Mitchell and 
Paul Sbarvy. The witnesses placed on 
the stand were Hubert F. Hanks, Leon 
Clark, David and Charles Wheaton, 
Angus McLean. Leigh Swan. Mrs. Lizzie 
M. Hoyth and Dr. McGiPfert. 

Bert Bellinger, the boy who did the 
shooting, told his story as follows with 
the aid of a few (juestions from County 
A 1 1 oi-ney A rbury : 

"I am 15 years old and work at Day & 
Metcalf's dental establishment. I have 
n<.>t gone to school two years and was 
in the fifth grade when I left. Tuesday 
afternoon I was hunting for birds with 
Dan Babcock. I had another little old 
rifie and traded it off to Dan for twenty- 
five cartridges. We went down to where 
the shooting occurred and met a lot of 
the boys. They were all standing around 
and I was swinging the .gun when it 
went olT somehow. It was at half cock. 
I think. Johnny Steven.son put his hand 
on his chest and I saw he was hit. He 
stag.gered and I grabbed hold of him 
and asketl htm where he was shot. He 
rev>li^MJ, 'In the stomach. I think I am 
going to die: never mind.' Then he fell 
and I ran for help. The janitor of the 
Swedish Baptist church pieked Johnny 
up and carried him to a house. Then 
they told me to go and toll Johnny's 
folks, and I was just starting when I wa.; 

Here the county attorney questioned 
Bert closely as to whether he expected 
the gun would go off. "I might hav. 
had my finger on the trigger, but I d^ 
not remember." said the lad. "I got thi- 
gun when the big ware<houses burned on 
Lake avenue and did not have to ixiy. 
All the l)oys .arot guns. 1 had two. M\- 
mother knew I had the gun and where it 
came from. I had loaded the gvm about 
two minutes before meeting Johnny. I 
told Mrs. Hoyth it was only a harmbs ; 
air sun. I always liked Johnny. 11" 
was a fiiend of mine." 

At the conclusion of the Inquest the 
boy was taken to the jail by Deputy 
Slieriff Klii)pen. 

liert Bellinger was arraignetl in the 
municipal court this morning before 
Judge Boyle on a charge of 
ttr. His hearing was set for Oct. :U ar 
10 a. m. 


Tomorrow and Saturday at the I..yceum 
will be presented Hoyt's funny comeily. 
"A Texa^ Steer." It is generally ad- 
mitted that Hoyt's comedies are the fun- 
niest upon the American stage and it is 
in turn admitted tiiat "A Texas Steer" is 
the most funny of all funny comedies 
that he ever wrote. The characters ar • 
more consistently dra'\'n. so the critics 
say, than in any other o.* .Tts productions; 
tfhe plot is more tangible and is more 
consistently carried out than in any other 
of his works. Thu story deals with 
American politics upon whicli it is a 
keen satire. It also throws a few slimt- 
shotjs at Washington society which aie 
insi-rted in a way that has celebrated 
TIo;,t as one of the best satirical wiiters 
in America. 

Tim Murphy, who heads the company, 
has made a reputation for himself in the 
character of Maverick Hrander whiih he 
assumes in the comedy. Tlie company 
surrounding him is one of the best ever 
seen in Hoyt's farces and they have 
plaved so long in this one piece that ever;.' 
detail of business, every look and ges- 
ture is tinished and polished to the last 
degree. It will not be ra.'prlsing if the 
largest house of the season greets "A 
Texas Steer" at the Lyceum, 

Physicians Recomtaend It, Druggists 
Sell It, Everybody Praises It. 

If we could sell one package of Pyra- 
mid Pile Cure to every person in America 
who is truu'oled with j>iles and who 
would gladly give $1 to be rid of the piles, 
we would have about $10,000,000. The i 
only reason that we don't sell that many j 
packages this year is that we will n )t be 1 
able to get l(J,00O,00O people to try It. Just ' 
one application will prove Its merit and 
amply rej)ay the cost of a whole box. 

The effect is immediate. Comfort comes 
at once and continued treatment will 
cure any case, no matter how bad.

flamed surface the instant it touches it.

Pyramid Pile Cure for my wife who had 
sijffered very much. The first trial did

and Tuesday evenings with a madneo on 
the latter day. His lat^P* production, 
"Helena." will lie given on Monday even-

mitted Itefore the curtain rise*!. Mr. 
Downing in the character of Orso is .oaid 
to lie .seen at his best. Miss Eugenie 
Blair, who has long been identified with 
the legitimate artists' stage, appears in 
the title role, a part that requires more 
dramatic iwwer and strength than any 
role yet attempted by this talented 
actre.«.s. Miss Blair has made a most 
pronounced hit in this pan, her acting 
of it rising far above the simple ami 
liathetic Neodamia, Virginia, Parthenia 
and other such roles as theaver-goers 
have been wont to see her ir. 

On Tuesday evening "The Gladiator" 
will be pro<iuced and at the matinee on

Robert Moran was arraigned in the 
municipal court yesterday afternoon on 
a charge of as.saultirg Detective Tom 
Hayden. He pleade<l no? guilty and was 
released under $l'> bonds to appear for 
trial tomorrow morning. A couple of 
weeks ago Moran was arrested on the 
charge of l)reakirig into the Merchants 
hotel Sept. % and was discharged by 
Judge Edson. Yesterday afternoon De- 
tective Hayden met the man in the St. 
Loui.s lobby and told Moran he must 
either go to work or get out of town. 
Moran grew very indignant, called Hay- 
den a bad name and was placed under 
arrest bv the detective who started to 
lead him" to police heatlquarters on a dis- 
orderly conduct charge. Moran resisted 
and was quieted only after a struggle.

Chjldhood'o Terrible Nerve Dis- 

Getting Fearfully Common-Ep- 
idemic Among Children. 

How it Comes on and How to 
Detect Its Approach. 

Nerves of Children Delicate and 
Must be Fed. 

Dr. Greene's Nervura Makes 
Them Strong and Well. 

The signs of nerve disorders In children 
are plain. There will be a pale look, 
darkness under the eyes, pinched feat- 
ures, and restlessness, Iriitability and 
nervousness. The api)e<tite is irregular, 
the sleep restless and disturbed, wKh 
tossing from side to side, starting in 
sleep, gritting the teeth; there is indis- 
position to play, the child remaining 
quiet and Inactive, and complaining of 
feeling tired. These are the first symp- 
toms and should be attended to at once, 
in oixler to check serious trouble. 

If St. Vitus' dance or fits are to result. 

there will be an imnatural. rapid wink- 
ing of the eyelids, an involuntary twitch- 
ing of the face, hand, arm, leg or some 
portion of the hotly: the pale, pinched 
look will be more marked, and the ner- 
vousness will grow rapidly worse. If 
treatment is delayed there is fearful dan- 
.ger of serious and fatal prostration of 
the nervous system. 

If parents will give their children .suf- 
fering from any of the above symptoms 
Dr. Greene* Nervura blood and nerve 
remedy, they will be as rejoiced as Mrs. 
F. B. Danforth, of 30 Evereitt street.

"The winter my little daughter was 7." 
she says, "siie had a long run of rheu- 
matic fever. Then the St. Vitus' dajioe 
came on, and .she got so bad she coukl 
hardly walk or talk. Several doctors 
treated her, but they did not help her. 

"I tried several remedies, and as I 
built up her general health she slowly 
gained, but never .got entirely over it. 
The next year it came on again in a 
worse form than before. 

"I tried Dr. Greene' Nervura blood and 
nerve remedy, and I could see a change 
for the better before s-he had taken the 
first bottle. She took three bottles reg- 
ularly, and since then I have given it to

Slight Failing Off in the Week's 

Minneapolis, Oct. :;4. — The North- 
western Miller gives the following sum- 
mary of the week's milling news: The 
flour output at Minneapolis last week 
was 27.'1,H().-. barrels against 298,900 the 
week before and 233,29.'') the same week 
last year. Minneapolis output may 
show another small decrease this week. 
Most of the mills experienced more or 
less imprnvenieiit in the demand for 
ttour last week, and although it came 
in a quiet way, the aggregate sales 
were only about 15,000 barrels short of 
the production. The volume of orders 
taken, varied with different firms. The 
export trade was generally light, though 
one concern sold freely. 

In one or two cases good export 
orders had to be turned down because 
the miller was uncertain as to his abili- 
ty to get the flour In transit before the 
close of navigation. A majority of the 
mills found domestic business quite 
good, cu-ders coming from all directions, 
and being indicative of a good healthy 
situation for millers. It was notice- 
able that buyers, when placing order.s, 
were urged to have the flour shipped 
at once. Some millers have become a 
trifle easier as to capacity for handling 
an increased number of orders, the 
minimum price on patent being quot- 
able about 5 cents lower. 

With some firms, first clear is not .sell- 
ing rapidly at full prices, but second 
clear goes almost without effort. Red 
dog is easier in price, as are all grades 
of feed. The possibility of an advance 
of freights is a sort of nightmare to 
the miller as it would greatly disor- 
ganize his business to have rates put 
up any higher. Export shipments of 
flour 82,300 barrels against 93.800 the 
week before, and 38,800 in 1894. 


The Wealthy Milwaukeean 
Takes His Life. 

New York, Oct. 21. — A .special to the 
Herald from Paris says: Francis Hin- 
ton, late manager of the Milwaukee 
Steel works blew out his brain.s at the 
corner of the Rue Royale and the 
Place De La Concorde at 8:30 o'clock 
Tuesday evening. His body was taken 
to a police station and there was no 
clew to his identity. In his pockets 
there were bank notes representing 20,- 
000 francs and two letters. His body 
wsis taken to the morgue where It was 
recognized as that of Mr. HInton. 

He came to Paris, where he had 
many friends, for his health, and to 
I>repare for his marriage with an Am- 
erican woman. He had visited Spauld- 
Ing's on Tuesday with W. H. Osborne, 
one of his friends, to buy jewelry for 
wedding presents. He had stayed at 
the Continental, but recently removed 
to the Binda. He left Osborne at 5:30 
p. m. Tuesday. He got his luggage 
and paid his bill at the Continental, 
then disappeared. His suicide is 
thought to be due to ill health. 

Many desperate cases of kidney dis- 
eases pronounced incurable have been

Alleging Consolidation of West- 
ern Rail Lines. 

Denver, Oct. 24. — A rumor is abroad 
in railway circles to the effect that a 
movement is In progress with the ob- 
ject of uniting several of the trans-con- 
tinental lines into one system, extend- 
ing from Chicago to the Pacific coast. 
The lines said to be in the deal are 
the Atchison. Toqeka & Santa Fe, the 
Denver & Rio (jrande, the Kio Grande 
Western, the Northern and the Oregon 
Short line. 

The piYiject is of such magnitude that 
it Is regarded with doubt by well in- 
formed railway men. According to the 
report, if the government takes posses- 
sion of the Union Pacific and the Cen- 
tral Pacific as one system, the consoli- 
dated lines named, perhaps with the 
substitution of the Colorado Midland 
for the Denver & Rio Grande, is almost 
a sure thing. 

Houston, Texas, Oct. 24. — Advices 
from Fort Rend and other sections give 
accounts of this year's crops of 
sugar cane. The freeze of last week 
severely damaged the cane stubble, 
causing it to mature dry and hard. Land 
in Fort Bend county which last year 
produced twenty to 'thirty tons of 
cane, this year produced only three to 
ten tons. The cutting will be finished 
in thirty days whei'eas it ordinarily 
takes a hundred. 

Cleveland, Oct. 24.— A. F. Naftzeger, 
of Los Angeles, Cal.. president of the 
Southern California Fruit exchange is 
here arranging for the sale of California 
fruit, particularly oranges and lemons, 
direct to jobbers, instead of through 
commission men as has been done here- 
tofore. He says the exchange, which 
represents 60 per cent of all the grow- 
ers, will establish a branch in all large 
cities in order to distribute the product 
and that the old method of doing busi- 
ness will be entirely done away with. 

Los Angeles, Cal., Oct. 24.— There ap- 
pears to be every prospect of a fight 
over the position of Lady Sholto-Doug- 
lass between two theatrical managers 
of this city. In October George Thomp- 
son, and Ed Keys signed a two months' 
contract with her ladyship at $250 a week 
and expenses, the contract to expire 
Jan. 16. They commenced, arrange- 
ments for a tour. They were thunder- 
struck to learn that the Frawley com- 
l>any had signed her ladyship for the 
remainder of the season at a largeer 
figure, alleged to be $300 a week, but 
really about $100. Thompson and his 
partner will seek legal means to pre- 
vent this.

Gentlemen: It affords "me unqualified 
pleasure to report that after having at 
your solioita>tion tried the Sparagus Kid- 
ney PilKs which you have recently intro- 
duced to the profession, I am entirely 
satisfied with the results obtained. 

As is well known, the kidneys are the 
principal excretory organs of the body, 
and I have long been satisfied that many 
of the ob.scure ailments which afflict 
humanity are tr-aeeable to kidneys 
which fail to properly perform their 

Until now I have tried, and used with 
vaiTing degrees of success, all thi' differ- 
ent remedies which are alleged to have 
a .specific action upon the kidneys, but 
have nevt r found anything that was en- 
tirely satisfactory until I began the use 
of Sparagus Kidney Pills. 

I think you are to be congratulated 
upon having boon able to produce a com- 
bination of remedies which have such a 
hai>py effect, and I take pleasure In rec- 
ommending yinir i>ill.« to my brother 
practitioners, who, I am sure, will find 
in them a reme<ly that will fully meet 
the indications presented in all diseases 
of the kidne.vs. as well as in all diseases 
which owe their origin to, or which de- 
pend upon, an unhealthy condition or 
action of the kidneys. 

Yours verv trulv,

Providence Bdg. W. B.vkton Chapin, M(jr 



The idea of having an lee palace and 
holding a winter carnival in L^uluth, 
which was propt)Sed by The Herald last 
evening, seems to meet with a large 
amount of popular approval. It is gener- 
ally agreed that Duluth has been very 
backward in encouraging winter sports 
and that it is time there was a 
This winter the bonspiel of the North- 
westem Curling association wil be held 
here, and a carnival in connection with 
it would draw well. 

Whitney Wall was secretary of the 
Carnival a.ssociation at St. Paul for two 
or three years. He says: 'I should like 
to see Duluth have a carnival by all 
means. There is no need to have any- 
thing to draw people here in the sum- 
mer for they come anyway, but in win- 
ter there is absolutely nothing to bring 
them. There is a splendid opportunity 
to ha\e a carnival here. Races could be 
held on the bay. Superior street is the 
only one that neM be illuminated, and a 
great showing would be made on it. 
People need to do somethng to encour- 
age outdoor sports in winter. They get 
too much accustomwl to staying indoors 
and thus injure tiieir health. It wil! 
take considerable money to build an ice 
palace, but it will be a lilg advertise- 

Mayor Lewis is strongly in favor of an 
ice palace and carnival in Duluth this 
winter, and thinks it would be a manifest 
l)enefit to the city, "The only possible 
objection in my mind is that our climate 
is too miltl," said his honor this morn- 
ing. •■Sul)scriptions for the purpose 
could certainly be easily raised, and 1 am 
glad The Herald has suggested the idea. 
1 have had a number of business men 
speak to me who favor the plan." 

John Panton, of Panton & Watson, 
said: "There is not a merchant nor a 
hotel keeper nor any kind of busi- 
ness that w'ould not be benefited by an 
ice palace and carnival here in Duluth. 
It would be the best of advertising for 
the city, and comparatively cheap at 
that. The ice Avotild not cost anything, 
and the only heavy expense would be the 
construction. Montreal has always bene- 
fited by her carnivals, and Duluth is 
bound to do likewise. If the project is 
started our firm will willingly subscribe, 
and I do not think there is a business 
man in town who will refuse. We can 
draw people from the Twin Cities, the 
range towns and from Dakota with th? 
help of the railroads. Since 1 have been 
in town wb have never even had a 
decent fireworks exhibit except at the 
Pavilion. If we are enthusiastic about 
this thing we can make a success of it." 

"I think that an ice carnival and ii-e 
palace would be a grand thing for Du- 
luth." said B. Silbersteln, of Silberstein 
& Bendy. "We can show the world thai 
we are alive. The railroads would have 
to make rales, thouj;h, in oidcr to draw 
the people here. We have had hard 
times, but now business is better and 
money easier, and I should say there 
was no better time than the present to 
announce it. Let somebody start it and 
I will do all in my power to help." 

"I have been thinking for some tim':^ 
that an ice palace would be advisable, 
and if one is decided on my firm will sub- 
scribe' liberally, " said J. E. Haynle. of 
iHoward & Haynie. "People go South to 
the Mardi Gras and they flock to the 
Montreal carnival.s, and there is no rea- 
si;n why Duluth .should not benefit in 
some way, "We certainly have enough 
liberal-minded men to sub.scribe the cost 
several times over, but we must not en- 
ter into this thing blindly. We must 
consider what other cities have done in 
laying our plans. I think all the busi- 
npss men will be enthusiastic over the

tion on Superior street to its elegant 
and commtodious new quarters. No. 2S 
West Superior .street in the Columbus 
building, the store formerly occupied 
by the F. A. Parker Crockery com- 
l)any. The company aside from its ex- 
tensive drayage business, will handle 
and deliver promptly a full line of all 
the best grades of coal, both hard and

is especially to be recommended. They 
will no doubt secure a large patronage 
for their fuel business in a short tim*-.

The Ninth Annual Convention of the Minnesota Christian 
Endeavor Union Held In Duluth on Friday, Satur- 
day and Sunday, Oct. 18, 19 and 20. 

Nearly Nine Hundred Endeavorers Were Present at the 

Sessions oF the Union and the Gathering Was 

the Most Successful Ever Held. 

A Complete Report of the Work of the Convention, Includ- 
ing all the Papers and Addresses and Reports 
of the Committees and Officers. 

The ninth annual convention of the 
Minnesota Christian Endeavor Union, 
held in this city on Friday. Saturday 
and Sunday last was the most success- 
ful gathering of the society ever held 
in this state. There were 325 delegates 
registered from the societies in the 
state outside of Duluth. Then there 
were about 500 Duluth Endeavorers in 
attendance, while fifty Endeavorers 

from Superior were present at all the 



Tho ninth annual convention of the 
Minnt'SOta Christian Endeavor union 
opened in the Congregational church 
shortly before 9:30 Friday morning. The 
organ loft of the church wis decorated 
with a handsome lot of potted plants, 
and the b.>dy of the church was illum- 
ined by thf bright and happy faces of 
several hundreds of Christian Endeavor 

The service opened with a brief. but 
feeling prayer by Rev. A. T. Morley. of 
Mirntapolis. after which Rev. W. W. 
NtweJl, of Duluth. led an inspiration 
service lasting half an hour. The subject 
of the service was: "Trusting in the 
Lord Jesus Christ For Strength. I Pro- 
mise." Mr. Newell made a stirring ad- 
dress upon this topic, concluding with a 
prayer for strength and purp.'Se. 

Short addresses and prayers by sev- 
eral of the delegates and pastojs fol- 
liwed. the whole interspersed with songs 
by the convention. The s'rvice cl-ised 
with a moment of silent prayer and more 
short addresses and prayers. 

The activ.f business of the convention 
was taken up immediately after this 
helpful and strengthening service. The 
first business in order was the appoint- 
ment of committees. 

Before taking up the work President 
Hunt spoke of the opening of the conven- 
tion, saying that the attendance at the 
opening session was larger than at any 
other state gathering. It is also unusual 
to hold the opening session in the morn- j 


The secretary then read the names of 
the nominating committee, consisting of 
piesidents of local districts, and instruct- 
ed them to meet at 1:45 o'clock. Several 
of those named were absent, and the 
delegates from their districts were in- 
structed to select subsfliutes. 

The second committee is the business 
committee, to look after the business of 
the convention and to make suggestions 
for next years meeting. On motion the 
president instructed to appoint this 
committee and the committee on resolu- 

Chairman Walter N. Carroll, of Min- 
neapolis, of the transportation com- 
mittee, then read his report, which was 
adopted. In effect the report stated that 
the chainnan had endeavored to look 
after the interests of the union in mat- 
ters relating to his dejpdrtmjnt in a 
manner that woulr] meet the approval of 
the members, and trusts that he has 
measurably succeeded. Certainly he has 
heard no complaint, and on the other 
hand has received many kind words. 

"The largest items of work in the 
past year have been the Boston con- 
vention and this convention with re- 
gard to the former, a special train, 
carrying 179 passengers was secured on 
the Soo lin€- and run through to Boston 
without change. The unanimous ver- 
dict was that this was the most enjoy- 
able excui-sion ever had to a conven- 
tion from Minnesota. The trip was 
ideal in all respects. 


In the arrangements for this conven- 
tion an earnest effort was made to se- 
cure a one fare rate, but without suc- 
cess except between the Twin Cities 
and Duluth. The St. Paul & Duluth 
•was selected as the official line and 
they are giving us excellent service. 
"This department has cost the union 
less than $10 and has saved several 
hundred dollars, ' said the chairman. 
"We think ■^•e have justified our ex- 
istence. What do you think of it? 

"Your chairman in closing this repoil, 
begs to acknowledge the pleasure he 
has felt in serving the Endeavorers of 
Minnesota in tr>ing to smooth their 
jiathway by means of good transporta- 
tion facilities and comfortable enter- 
tainment at their journey's end. When 
I get rich I am going to own a railroad 
and will give every Endeavorer a free 
ride to conventions held on my line. 
All aboard!" 

Mrs. J. Currie Clark, editor of the 
official state paper, the Minnesota En- 
deavorer, was then given an interest- 
ing twenty minutes, which she opened 
with an amusing dialogue in which 
she acted as teacher and the officers 
of the union as class. By means of 
amusing questions and answers the 
objects, aims, means and conditicm of 
the paper were brought out. after which 
she made her report as follows: 

Dear friends. I hope you are pleased 
•with the recitation. The subject is one 
that ever>' Minnesota Endeavorer 
should thoroughly understand, for with 
enlightenment interest is born, and a 
closer familiarity instead of breeding 
contempt, opens your pocket books. 
and lo! the quarters gush forth. 

Other state papers call for half a 
dollar, but Minnesota with her usual 
large heartedness, only asks one-half 
that amount. 

Other cities do not send free copies 
to their corresponding secretaries and 
junior superintendents, but the North 
Star, a No. 1 hard wheat, gold, iron, 
copper, great unsalted sea state, is as 
free handed with her papers as her 
harvests. Notwithstanding her gener- 
osity, when potatoes are only 15 cents 
per bu.^hel and the Endeavorer costs 
only please take It. she can't 
sell the former and the corresponding 
secretaries occasionally instruct the 
postmaster to notify the publisher that 
the paper is refused. If any present 

wish It discontinued, break the news 
gently to the business manager, "re- 
turned with thanks" would be an ap- 
propriate selection. 

Sometimes a postal card comes say- 
ing: "I have not received a paper, 
either send or refund," we generally 
find a disparity in address the cause 
and are glad to rectify it. 

It costs to publish the paper, about 
$30 per month. 1500 copies are usually 
issued. 1JKX» were printed for July. There 
are about 1800 Endeavorers in this state 
and 500 paid subscribers to their state 

Let me suggest how you can help. 
First, by subscribing. If you do not 
care for it yourself pay for someone 
else. One of our pastors sends his check 
for ten copies, to be sent where they 
can do the most good. 

Second, after you have subscribed 
(unless you positively cannot) pray for 
it. It needs quarters as well as prayers 
to carry on the Lords work. 

Third, appoint correspondents in your 
societies to ^end me news items. If 
your committees are doing anything, 
let me know it. If you raise money for 
missions, write about it. If you are tak- 
ing charge of Sunday services or doing 
evangelistic work, post me. 

When a "broadside" on a certain 
subject is advertised for a certain 
month, send help to the writer. 

Ask questions — we should be glad to 
have a "quiz corner." Make sugges- 
tions that will improve the paper. 

Corresponding secretaries and junior 
superintendents, please show the En- 
deavorer to others, talk about it. inter- 
est others in it; get a list of subscrib- 

Friends, the paper is yours to make 
a success or failure of. The editors are 
willing to do all In their power to ad- 
vance the cause In our beloved common- 
w^ealth, strengthen Its columns, but to 
make the burden easy the yoke must 
rest on both our shoulders. 


An interesting discussion of the needs 
of the paper and the Importance of Its 
existence followed, in which a number of 
delegates took part. State Treasurer 
Jo.seph Chapman. Jr.. of Minneapolis, 
said that it would be absolutely necessary 
for the Endeavorers to give their support 
in order to keep it going. 

Ways and means for enlarging the 
paid subscription list were discussed, and 
as a means of doing this the question of 
continuing the paper was submitted to a 
vote, those rising pledging themselves 
to one paid subscription. Nearly the 
whole convention arose. Then a large 
number gave their names as subscribers 
to four numbers apiece, and others to 
larger numbers up to twenty-five. 

In this manner 250 new subscriljers 
were received, aside from the single sub- 
scriptions pledged by the rising vote 
upon the continuance of the paper. 

Miss Louise Hall then sang West's 
"Nearer My God to Thee" beautifully, 
accompanied by Arthur Drake. 


Joseph Chapman. Jr.. of Minneapolis, 
state treasurer, then read his report, 
likening himself to the treetoad singing 
for rain, which was promised rain if it 
would stop. He had not yet realized 
the toad's success. Out of 800 societies 
in the state, but 280 have contributed to 
the expenses of the state union. The 
union this year is indebted more than it 
was last year. The state paper has cost 
$20 a month for ten months, and that has 
prevented the payment of the Standard 
debt of $75. which st'.ll hangs fire. The 
sum of $15(X» will be needed for this 

The routine report, which was pre- 
ceded by an amusing description of the 
union's finances, follows: 

Disbursements — Winona convention. 
$43.01; Winona Herald, $81; printing, 
$138. '.'7; transportation. Cleveland guar- 
antee, $129.15; Minnesota Endeavorer, 
$152..50; president's expenses, $112.35; .sec- 
retary's expenses, $163.79; treasurer's ex- 
penses, $51.95; junior superintendent's 
expenses, $74.25; total expenses, $946.97. 

The total receipts were $970.10, leaving 
a balance of $23.13 In the bank. The 
following outstanding liabilities were re- 
ported: Minnesota Endeavorer, $47.."»0; 
C. A. Holbrook, $124.92; di.scounts, $100; 
Standard, $75; miscellaneous, $20.38, 

After a considerable sum was pledged 
by the various societies, the program was 
again taken up. and Miss Maud Taylor, 
of Fulda, read an address on "The 
So'ial Hour" as follows: 

We often hear the remark made "1 
would like to be a Christian, but I can 
not bring myself to give up all pleasure." 
The r>erson carrj-ing the idea that to walk 
in the way of Christ one resolutelv 
set their face against and denounce all 
plt>asure, and carry a long fac« . To 
liiose who have tasted this love of Jesus 
how absurh the idea seems, for we know 
that a triio Christian should be and is 
the happiest of all people, and whj- should 
they not be? when our peace is made with 
God, and instead of fearing death we 
only look forward to it as a time when 
we shall be united with Him. what else 
shoiild we fear to make us unhappy? 

When we see a sour visaged prrson, 
claiming to be a Christian, we make up 
our minds (and with good rea.son) that 
there is something wrong in their spirit- 
ual life. Then as Christians we should 
be happy. As young people we are by 
nature social creatures. God has put 
this stocial element in our makeup, and 
He intends that wp shall make the most 
of it, and it should not make us any tlie 
less socially inclined, Ijecause wc" are 
mrmbers of the churoh and Christian 
Endeavor, on the contrary it should only 
bring out this eJement the more. We 
rtnd in the Word "a merry heart doeth 
good like medicine." 

In our every day life we can not all 
work at the same business, but each 
must go to his or hpr plaee of work, bo 
it office, school room or in the home, 
naturally this leads to a certain amount 
of estrangement. How shall this he 
overcome? There must be some gathrr- 
ing place where all may meet in social 
communion. The world has established 
such places for its followers, in the dance 
hall, the card table, etc. But our com- 
mand is "come out from the world. " and 
our better selves as well as our churches 
Bay "thou shalt not," Inasmuch then as 

this is the case what *hall be done? There 
is only the one alternative, wc must pro- 
vide places where a social hour may b« 
spent protltably and without curse to the 

The spiritual t>art of the church must 
not suffer from the social but instead 
this Social hour should be onlv an oiK>n- 
ing to lead tho way for young people to 
be brought to (.'lirLst. We come in con- 
tact with tlum there and little by little 
gain, an influence over them, t-ach time, 
of meeting, -saying i>erhaps, si>nic wonl 
for the Master. I'ossiblv gaining them

Then in bringing the. outsiders into these 
meetings they are drawn away from the 
evil associations and the tempter, and if 
made of regular occurrence very often 
will choose them instead of the old re- 

But we have .«*poken altogether con- 
cerning those out of Christ. Now for 

The.s,", isocial givtherings break ilown 
denominationaJ line*, as well, and trv as 
we will there is always more or less of 
<hi9 creeps in and apropos to this 1 am 
reminded of a little incident which oc- 
curred in our church at home not long 
ago. .The .Sunday school were giving a 
concert and one of the numt>ers was a 
dialogue entitled. "Christ Our King." 
Now there was needed a banner with 
these words on, so it was thought wise 
to use the S. S. banner having the words 
painted on the back. On the front of 
the banner were the words "First Pres- 
byterian S. S. of Fulda." At the proper 
time in the piece the boy came forward 
bearing the banner, placing the side with 
the Presl)yterian story toward the audi- 
ence. Our pastor sat on the rear of the 
stage and he turned the banner to dis- 
play "Christ Our King" to the public, but 
no, the l>oy would not have it so. liut 
turned it back. Twice was this repeated 
and at last the boy was victorious, and 
succeeded in keeping "Pre^sbyterianlsm" 
to the front. Now 1 believe we arc just 
like that boy many times, innocentlv he 
was trying to keep the church before the 
people instead of Christ- All tho time he 
supposed he was doing Just what was 
right. But in these social hours we can 
so completely lose sight of denomina- 
tion and make Christ uppermost. 

Some one has said '•religion is like a 
fashion, in dress, we put it on and if it 
becomes us and sets well others copy." 
That l.s. if it is found when in close con- 
tact with us that if our religion makes 
us better and nobler others will want it. 
So in our social hour we can plainly 
show that there is something above our

After prayer by Rev. W. W. Dawlev 
the convention adjourned until 2 15 

The afternoon's session was held In 
the Congregational church and began 
with a praise service, which was followed 
by devotional exercises. The-n Miss 
Kate Gramliftg. of Rochester, read a 
paper on "Music as an Evangelizing 
Force." It wa.s as follows: 

Music was the first .sound heard in the 
creation, when the morning stars sang 
together. It was the first sound hoard 
at the birth of Christ, when the angels 
sang together above the plains of Beth- 
lehem, "Glory be to God, and on earth 
peace, good-will toward men." 

It is the universal language which ap- 
pt als to the unlver.'='al heart of mankind. 
Its thrill pervades all nature, iiLthe hum 
of the tlnie.«!t insect, in the tops of the 
wind-smitten pines, in the solemn diapa- 
son of fhe ocean, and there must come a 
time when it will be the only suggestion 
left of our human nature and the crea- 
tion. Since It alone, of all things on 
earth, is known in heaven. The human 
soul and music are alone eternal. Music 
is well .said to be the speech of angels, 
and brings us nearer to the infinite, and 
our loving Father has given us this won- 
derful gift. As Longfellow has said: 

"God sent his singers upon earth 

With songs of sadness and of mirth. 

That they might touch the hearts of 

And bring them back to heaven again." 

Since singing is an accomplishment 
w^ can carr>' with us to heaven, is it not 
well to give it an important place in our 

Are there not times when it appeals to 
us with far grt^ater force than would the 
words of our dearest friend? Think 
what ministry music has had upon the 
lives of countless numbers; how much 
sorrow it has comforted, and how many 

Is music. "A song will outUve all ser- 
mons in the memory." Its intelligent 
use is particularly important to us as 
Christian Endeavorers banded together 
as we are in such great numbers, with 
so glorious a motto, "For Christ and the 
Church." In contemplating this subject 
we will consider it under three heads. 
When? How? And by whom shall the 
music be furnished? 

It is not always necessary to sing at 
fixwl times; tho spirit of the meeting 
.should be communion with God, end 
when that communion can be better ex- 
pressed in song than words, sing; Let 
us not always Ik? hampered by an instru- 
ment, as is so often the case when a 
song is suggested; the organist has to 
find the place and then play a long pre- 
lude, and while I do not wish you to 
think that I am opposed to the use of 
organs. I think, on the contrary, it 
plays an imi»ortant part in our public 
worship, where 

"The Master's hand revolveth 
In richest harmony." 

And yet there are times when the 
human voice lifted in to God is 
more effective than as though it were 
accompanied by the organ. , ,„»..c^ .„^«. .^^..^^.tv. .^ i^ 

In the selection of songs great care more easily, more surely and more 

should be taken to see that they are 
appropriate to the occasion, and not used 
merely to occupy the time, as, for in- 
stance, if the thought is praise, it would 
hardly be advisable to sing "How Dark 
and Doleful is the Tomb," when "I Will 
Sing the Wondrous Story" would better 
express our thought. 

How should these songs be sung? With 
the true spirit of the song, and if with 
the true spirit, they will certainly reach 
the heart. 

I recall an inciderrt that occurred in 
our midweek prayer meeting recently. A 
lady asked of the leader why God re- 
quired perfection of us when it was im- 
possible for us to be perfect. The reply 
from one gentleman was that perfection 
was the ideal to be soughtt after, and the 
Lord could not lower the standard by 
saying "Be ye half way perfect," but 
that we must strive to be perfect, even 
as our father in heaven Is perfect. Some 
one then suggested the song: 
"Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy 

We would not expect one who is not a 
Christian to lead a meeting or offer 
prayer when their lives are not in ac- 
cord with the righteousness of Christ: 
then why should we expect them to lead 
us in sacred singing. It has seemed al- 
most sacrilegious, or, in less severe 
terms, extremely inappropriate, to me, 
to have in our choirs and leaders of re- 
vival services people praising God and 
urging others to come to him who care 
nothing at all for the words they are 

While our choirs occupy an important 
place in our service, do we not depend 
upon them too much? In a conversation 
not long since with one of my friends 
who is greatly interested in the subject, 
she said: "There Is no work that the 
Christian Endeavorers can engage in 
that would be more appreciated than 
urging and helping congregational sing- 
ing. " What a difference it would make 
in all our church services if Christians 
were to sing as if they were practising 
for the celestial ohorus. In conclusion I 
can do no better than quote the words 
of one of our greatest divines: 

"Singing Is that natural method by 
which thoughts are reduced to feeling

common human natures, somothing 
heaveiUv "which cometh from above." 
Now in' closing I want to speak a word 
on the subject of "pay socials." They 
are often confounded with the social 
hour, and what a mistake for how sel- 
dom do we attend a social where the ob- 
ject is to raise money, which is social. 

Let us raise our money -by giving 
litlies. and then when we have a 80«ial 
hour have it social. Now it seems that 
we all of us must understand why we 
should have these: i. e. to strengthen 
Christians and to get hold of outsidcr,M 
and bring them to Christ. 


The second speaker. Bon Soper. of Osh- 
kosh, was not present, and the subject 
of "Social Hours" was given a general 
discussion, in which a number of excel- 
lent points were brought out. 

One speaker said that her society mswie 
a practice of combining the social hour 
with the business meeting, thus ensuring 
a quorum. The social hour i.s as neces- 
sary as anything in connection with the 
Christian Endeavor wt)rk. Another 
speaker said that his .eociety made a 
practice of not only extending a general 
invitation to the socials, but to send out 
.special Invitations, especially to young 

Another spoke of the evil of gathering 
in cliques to the exclusion of the visiting 
stranger, thus giving outsiders an idea 
of frigidity. A number of societies have 
entirely discarded the refreshment idea, 
giving up the time to social mingling. 

One society replaced refreshments 
with interesting games, and whether 
this was the result or not. the society had 
gained 100 members during the year. 

It was unanimously voted to instruct 
the committee on resolutions to embody 
in the resolutions a plank as the senti- 
ment of the convention in favor of the 
abolition of the pay social. 


At this time the president announced 
his committees as follows; 

blessings it has brought to us through 
its influence. Not alone in times of sor- 
row, but when the heart is filled with joy 
we burst forth with songs of gladness 
and of praise as we teach the children to 
"If you have a pleasant thought, sing it, 

sing it, ' 
As the birds sing In their sport, sing it 

from the heart. " 
So should we sing in hymns of praise. 
We all know the strong influence the 
singing in our conventions has had upon 
us. and the deep Impressions that have 
been left, not alone ur»on Christian Kix- 
deavorers, but upon all those who have 
come under its mighty power. How easy 
we find it to sing praises wlien there are 
hundreds and thousands of us in chorus, 
but Is It quite so easy to sing with the 
same spirit when we return to our homos 
and go to a ver>- small meeting; and then 
how about the praise in our hearts when 
we meet some duty that is Irk.some, can 
we sing with joy in our hearts: 
"In a world where sorrow ever will be 

Where are found the needy and tho sad 

and lone; 
How much joy and comfort you can all 

If you scatter sunshine everywhere you 

When the days are gloomy, sing some 

happy ftong; 
Meet the world's repining with a cour- 
age strong; 
Go with faith undaunted thro' the ills 

of life. 
Scatter smiles and sunshine o'er Its toils 

and strife." 
Within the past few years the atten- 
tion of the Christian people has been 
directed to one particular branch of 
work, namely, that of leading people to 
Christ, and there is no work that re- 
quires more earnest thought, one of the 
most effective means to accomplish this 

Lord ; 
Abide in him always, and feed on his 

word ; 
Make friends of God's children, help 

those who are weak. 
Forgetting in nothing his blessing to 

Take time to be holy, be calm In thy 

Each thought and each motive beneath 

his control; 
Thus led by his spirit to fountains of 

Thou soon shalt bo fitted for service 


The gentleman met the lady a few 
days after and asked her if she still had 
doubts, and she replied, "Oh, no, that 
song settled the question for me." Can- 
not some of us recall instances where a 
heart has been touched that for years 
has been insensible to good influences, 
by again hearing some song they had 
heard in childhood. How often has one 
hesitating in dt»cldlng for Christ been 
moved by 

"Almost persuaded now to believe. 
Almost pei-suaded Christ to receive." 
And when heads are bowed in prayer 
how sweet the influence of 

"More love to thee, O Christ, 

More love tp thee." 
Or the song. "lx)rd. I Hear of Showers 
of Blessing. " tho history of which has 
been that frequently in revival meetings 
the "Even me" of its chorus has ex- 
press€d our Savior's promise to save to 
the uttermost those who accept his love. 
Another equally eflfetitive. "Nearer, My 
God, to Thee," has lifted many fainting 
souls. In the hours of our conventions 
devoted to consecration meetings, how 
striking havt> been the words, "Conse- 
crate me now to thy service. Lord," and 
have they not sent us on our homeward 
way with renewed strength and purpose 
to live for the Master? 
By whom shall the singing be dope? 

versally than by any other. You are 
conscious when >'hju go to an earnest 
meeting, for Instance, that, while hymns 
are being sung and you listen to them, 
your heart Is. as it were, loosened, and 
there comes out of those hymns to you a 
realization of the "truth" such as you 
never had before. There is a pleading 
element, there is a sense of humiliation 
of heart, there is a poignant realization 
of sin and Its guiltiness, there is a yearn- 
ing for a brighter life in a hymn which 
you do not find in your closet; and. In 
singing, you come into sympathy with 
the truth as you perhaps never do under 
the preaching of a discourse. There Is a 
provision made in singing for the devel- 
opment of almost every phase of Chris- 
tian experience. Singing has also a won- 
derful effect upon those feelings which 
we wish to restrain. All are not alike 
susceptible, but all are susceptible to 
some extent. I speak with emphasis on 
this point, because I am peculiarly sen- 
sitive to singing and because I owe so 
much to It. How many times have I 
come into the church on Sunday morn- 
ing jaded and somewhat desponding, 
saddened, at any rate, and before the 
organ voluntary was completed, under- 
gone a change as great as though I had 
been taken out of January and been 
plumped down in the middle of May, 
with spring blos.soms on every hand! 
How many, many times have I been 
lifted out of a depressed state of mind 
into a cheerful mood by the singing be- 
fore I began to preach! How often, in 
looking forward to the prayer meeting, 
has my prevailing thought been, not of 
what I was going to say, but of the 
hymns that would be sung! My prayer 
meeting consists largely of the singing 
of hymns which are full of prayings, and 
my predominant thousrht in connection 
with those gatherings ie: "Oh, that 
sweet, joyful singing." 
Rev. John Orchard, of Fargo, state 
superintendent of junior •work for Da- 
kota, delivered an address on the "Value 
of Junior Work." He said: 

A pioneer In California says that for the 
first year or two after his residence in 
Neva/da county there was not a child in 
reach of a hundred miles. 

The Fourth of July came round, and with 
it a desire to celebrate in a becoming man- 
ner the national day, and so with poem, 
oration, speech and a big brass band they 
commenced their fesrtlvitios. 

Whilst the band was playing, an infant's 
voice was heard orj'ing and all the miners 
were startled, presently these men began 
lo think of their wives and their little ones 
on the Eastern coast far away, their 
rough exterior could not hide the manly 
hearts that beat bo emotionally, making 
them homewok by the cry of a child. Still 
the music went on and the little one cried 
loud«er and louder, but the more tlie baby 
cried the greater noise the band made in 
order to drown the infantile interruption, 
but it was impossible, the child would be 
heard. Then a swarthy miner (the tears 
rolling down his cheeks) rose up, and 
.standing in front of the band said as he 
.shook his brawny fist, "Stop that noisy 
band and give that cliild a chance." 

Christian Endeavorers, these Fourth of 
July celebrators are not the only people 
that have had their brass bands to play; 
our churches have had them, yea have 
tht-m today in their many attractions and 
distractions; so that the children of our 
Christian circles are in great danger of 
Ijeing s'nami>ed altogether. We have our 
5)ig debts, church fairs and socials, yea, 
even our work of philanthropy and these 
we are playing for all they are worth in 
the urgency of making a great noise, or 
!;s a great parade for the world's notice, 
but amid all this din and bustle the 
child's voice can be heard asking for its 
necessary- recognition. Silence that voice 
vou say! Never! It cannot be silenced, 
we dare not silence it lest the great fabric 
of church progression tumbles to the 

My plea at this time is, give the child a 
chance, listen to its voice, hear its earnest 
idea, throw your symi.>athies, co-operation 
and love around him and your labors shall 
be abundantly rewarded. 

My su-bjc>ct is "The V:ilue of Junior 
Work." let nie say tirt<t that 1 value junioi' 
work it is the truest sign tliat the 
church is keeping pace with the times in 
which we li\e. Today we live in a progres- 
sive age, second to none in the history of 
the world. Wc are not living amid the 
bloom and beauty of paradise when the 
day of overshadowing clouds was not 
known, when the rosebud had no thorns, 
the beast no ferociousness, the insect no 
sting and the heart no soitow; it is not the 
age of the rich music of that happy home 
whicJi had no minor chords, no notes of 
melancholy, no sounds of discord, not the 
age when the strcBuns, the woods and the 
cedars were like so many harp su-ings 
bringing joy to its living inhabitants. 
Nay. would to God that it was, but the 
ago of today is an intensified age that fol- 
lowixl the cold shiuJow of the fall in which 
the rose that bloomed in paradise with- 
ered in the hands of her that plucked iL 
It is an age that measures the sharpness 
of the intellect with the cuteness of the 
sharper; an age ■w^on truth and falsehood 
lie so near together that it is a matter of 
great discernment to be able to distin- 
guish between right and wrong. Into this 
age is thnist the childhood of today and 
in so far as the church accepts her respon- 
sibility, .so far is she progressive and a 
loiider in the vaai of Christian culture. 

1 value junior work therefor as a defin- 
ite sign tliat the church of God is making 
headway as tho great central force in the 
ociuipment of the coming generations for 
Christ an<l tho church. 

It is one of the great agencies of Go<l in 
lessening the masses of non-church goers. 
We have our evaJigelistic methods, by 
which the rospol is borne almost tlie 
world over. We have our Y. M. & Y. W'. C. 
A.'s that seek to reach the young men 
and women; our Bible school for a greater 
cfttciency in Scripture study; then there 
arises that once despised but now welcome 
.handmaid, the Salvation Army, and la,st 
but not least that KTcat "headlight of th« 
nineteenth century," the Christian En- 
deavor, and still the masses are un- 
reacho<1. 'I'lio cesspools of vice are entrap- 
pir*: our tliousands. The dismal swamps of 
tile slums are swaltowing up their tens of 
thousands. The a\-alanche of drunkenness 
is carrying away its millions. The fre- 
quenters of the cesspools yesterday. Tlie 
residents of the slums today. The inhabi- 
tants of the dninkards' grave tomorrow, 
were not boni in ihe slums, but were in 
most cases once In our Sunday school and 
frequenters of our churches. Thank God 
our Sunday schools are doing a noble work, 
but they caiinot stem the tide of churcb 

The churches are holding forth the word 
but are unable tx> stop the outflow toward 
skepticism and infidelity. 

(Tnildren are drifting, l)oys arc drifting, 
men are drifting and the slums become full 
of the young men and women that ought 
to have been retained In our Sunday 
schools. It is a. sad fact, but alas it is too 
true that our own children are feeding tho 
slums. Our own children are hlling up the 

by song', prayer and Scripture, and equips 
for practical warfare our children at the 
a^e when they are most susceptible to evil 
influences. The Junior Endeavor stand* 
in the breach, and staimches the life blood 
of our Sunday school, while the salvation 
of ten Juniors lessens by one-tenth these 
that would otherwise fill up the slums of 
our cities. 

The general Introduction of junior socle- 
ties would during the next few generations 
break up the slums, put out the firee by 
which they are fed, and the masses would 
l*e saved. 

I value Junior work again for the sake of 
the juniors themselves. Pardon me if I 
give you a leaf out of my own note book. 
In Septemi)er of last year North Dakota 
ehld her annual state convention at Kargo. 
I was then pastor of the extreme western 
church in thie state, 30u miles from Farpo. 
We had found it imrx)SBible to keep alive 
a senior society and so I organized a 
junior of forty-two members. This so 
shamed the older members that they had 
a resurrection. 1 have not had a second 
funeral— I like births better than deaths. 
The secretar>' of the state. In correspond- 
ence with me, questioned very closely my 
method of junior work. I found he had a 
reason, in that a report was to be present- 
e'd to the convention saying that it was 
not advisable In the frontier towns to push 
the junior work— or in other words that 
North Dakota must be content to let the 
children— save for one hour on Sundav in 
the Sunday school, go to the devil. This 
aroused me to ask that the report be not 
adopted. I was urged to come to the con- 
vention, but as $30 bills do not grow on the 
prairie, nor stay long I na missionary's 
pocket, 1 had to say at first that I could 
not iKissibly come, but as the fatal effects 
of the report dai*-ned upon me I wrote I 
will come though I have to drive the 300 
miles. As the time drew near and neither 
horse, buggy nor money was visible, I 
had to cast about for another mode of 
conveyance— and it came. A preacher can 
become a cowboy as well as the next one 
and so donning an old suit of clothes (and 
w;ith my Sunday-go-to-me-eting suit in mv 
grip) I started for Fargo with a train load 
of cattle, but another difficulty arose. To 
get a pass back over the line to Dickinson 
it was necessary to go to the great bf-of 
center, Chicago. TTiis meajit that a jour- 
ney of TOO miles l>eyond Fargo and 700 miles 
back again was required in order to at- 
tend the meeting, but I got there all riirtit 
nevertheless and heard the report, "No 
room for junior work." In a moment I 
was on my feet, gave my personal expe- 
rience and moved that no such report pass 
the convention. It was referred back. I 
was asked to fill a vacancy in the even- 
ing program, and. though adverse to speak 
without preparation, I dared not refuse 
and somehow I felt that God would give 
me a right message, my heart was on fire, 
and feeling ver>' much like the little man 
in a crowded thoroughfare who all at 
once began to edge his way through the 
crowd calling out: "Stand back men. I 
am called." Brethren. I too felt then 
called, called to speak and so I said in my 
heart. Stand hack men! Stand back an- 
gels! Stand back devil! Stand back ever%-- 
one! I am called. I spoke and to my joy 
the report was withdrawn, though my pre- 
decessor had his revenge by nominating 
me as junior superintendent for the en- 
suing year. I dared not refuse and so ac- 
cepted the responsibility with tremblina-. 
but my earnest plea had already done its 
work, and following this up by circular, 
personal letter and addresses, "we organ- 
ized society after society and had the iov 
of reporUng an increase in membership 
this September of 831 per cent. One of tho 
Junior societies started with twenty mem- 
hers. increased to 75 before the conven- 
tion meeting. With what jov we all li.s- 
te^ned to the model meeting of this junior 
society, held at the church where six 
months before this same societv was or- 
ganized—oh. how these little folks praye-d. 
saong and recited; with joy their mothers 
told of true obedience, a nobler conduct, 
less selfishness; their leader spoke of a 
loving spirit one towards another, of faith- 
fulness in keeping the pledge, and of an 
earnest interest in winning others. Mv 
brother do you wonder that I value the 
junior work of the C. E. 

Then again, the value of junior work is 
seen in its missionary spirit. To save our 
children we must ourselves be saved. No 
a^ncy yet brought to light has done more, 
or Is doing more for the salvation of our 
children than the Junior Society of Chris- 
tian Endeavor, and there is " no power 
greater in teaching mothers and fathers 
than the converted boy and girl in the 

The pastor at Jamestown convention, 
.speaking of the juniors— the seventy'-five 
1 have mentioned— said that a marked in- 
terest in Bible study, in church attendance 
and in spiritual life on the part of the 
parents of the juniors were altogether 
attributable to the loyal band of seventv- 
five. The vice president of the senior so- 
ciety of the same church reported that 
never in the experience of the older k>- 
ciety had she seen such power for good, 
largely the result of a quickening spirit 
among the Juniors. She said the noble 
confessions of these children had so stirred 
the hoar:s of the seniors to energetic worK 
that for the first time in the histor^• of 
the society they had contributed to foreign 
work $2.1; home mission, $25; state union. 
$25; besides purchasing a complete outfit 
lor the Junior society. Another reported 
that in their town the Juniors had become 
a marked leature for good in bringing their 
companions from the day school to the 
Christian Kndeavor scx-iety and also In 
getting them to attend the sessions of the 
Sunday school. 

The value of a senior society— thst is 
alive— is seen in a living church and I 
have yet failed to find either a dead senior 
society or a dead Sunday school where 
there has been a living Junior society — so 
that whilst tho seniors are loyal to the 
church, a power in the prayer meeting, 
the juniors are the pastor's inner circle, 
hts reser\oir, his body guanl. It is said 
of an old Roman general that on a great 
procession day he stood leaning on his 
staff, and as the band played and the pro- 
oeftslon marched on. his eye caught a ban- 
ner »x)me by valiant old soldiers on which 
was written. "We have been l>rave." Alas, 
said tho old man, "these will soon pass 
away and who will take care of my coun- 
try- then?" Soon another company passed 
by. These were young men l>earing also 
a l>anneT upon which was inscril>ed. "We 
are brave." The old man leaned yet upon 
his staff and sigh»xl saying. 'Thes*', too. 
will i> away and who will take care of 
my country then?" But yet another pro- 
cession with music and banner. This com- 
pany ouinumhered either of the others by 
ten to one, their banner was held aloft 
and bore this motto, "WV will be brave." 
The old general lifted up his eyes and 
said it is enough, thank God my "country 
is safe. Yonder is that old KTay haired 
man. for live, ten or twenty years he has 
laliored in these Western fields: looking 
over his congregation he sees the age^ 
men and women who have been faithful 
to their vows, he knows their steps are 
Hearing the shores of eternity, he bends 
his ear to catch their notes as they pass 
over the river, it is this, "we have fought 
the fight, we have kept the faith, we hav>' 
finished the" and whilst rejoicing 
in their reward he asks tremblingly, and 
who will care for the church of God now? 
But In the distance there is marching on- 
ward a company whose num^rs can 
.st-arcely be counted, as they come nearer 
h" catches thrlr t>uglo call and hears 
their clarion cry, it is this, "For Christ 
and the church." He thanks God and 
tiikos courage; but yet he says these, too. 
will soon pass away and who will care for 
the church then? But who are these that 
fly as a cloud, that come as unto Mount 
Zion. their sound at first is but faint, buC 
it increases, it now is as the voice of many* 
waters, now fuller yet fuller, deeper and 
higher, on, on they come until he sees 
tlKlr numbers, hears their song and on 
their banner this ensign, "We will be 
brave." .\nd then, not one, but twenty 
little eyes looked up to his, not one but 
twenty ears watch to catch his words, not 
one but twetity hearts are praying for hitn 
and the church, not one but twenty 
hands are ready for service, and as ho 
sees this band of Junior Christian En- 
deavorers, he lifts up his hands in Juyfiil- 
ness .xnd exclaims, "Now lettest Tliou thy 
servant depart in peace, for mine eyes 
have frcen Thy salvation," Yes the aged 
as ripe sho<^-ks of grain are ready to be 
gathered. The faithful seniors are in the 
thick of the fight and thank God, this 
Inner circle of the pastor brings up the 
rear as tho church's bulitv-ark for the fut- 
ure generation. 

An English lad had charge of a number 
of sheep and Iambs. One day he was seen 
to' fence off a large i>ortion" of his clover 
field, and being asked what this was for. 
he said, "Well, you see In giving a part, 
at a time the sheep will have fresh pas- 
ture for many da>-s." "But," says the vts- 

ranks of the depraved and dying, simply 1 itor. "why Is that small enclosure fenced 
because they have been allowed to drif L off from the large?" "Well." said he "it 
I value junior work because it fort|fle« I is like this, "ni© sheep would soon tramp 






dowa all tlf« aweet clover and the lambs 
wouM get no food, and so I keep this fresh 
for the lambs every day." 

Dear brother worlcers, no church for its 
own sake can aftord to b© without the en- 
closure within the enolosun*. to have 
this Inner circle will prevent the pastor 
from crossing: the dead line either at 
60 or 80 summers.

The work of the junior society reacts 
on the worker. You have watched the

and keeping them in the church.

Then the open parliament was held 
under Mr. Orchards direction. 

He invited everyone in the audience to 
ask him questions alxjut it, but first he 
asked them to say why they started their 
junior societies. The answers were 
various. One had started because they 
had long felt the need of it, another be- 
cause they wished to train the bDys and 
yirls. another because they wanted to 
build up the union society, and still an- 
other because the juniors came into the 
senior society and took up too much of 
the time. 

Then one wanted to know how many 
juniors were necessary to start a junior 
society. "One upward," was the prompt 
response. How to interest the pastor 
was another question. "If he is not inter- 
ested, he should be placed in the junior 
class." was the response. 

"How to interest parents? Hold open 
sessions once a month, sending invita- 
tions to the parents through the chil- 
dren." Methods of interesting the chil- 
dren were suggested, such as training in 
Bible characters, Bible drill, chalk talks, 

The question of what to do with the 
unruly ones came up, and occupation for 
their minds and kindness and persever- 
ance were suggested. One man said 
that their training should begin at home. 
The junior rally then took place, and 
for an hour the body of the church was 
given up to the Juniors. The rally was 
conducted by Rev. W. W. Newell, who 
read an interesting speech by Albert 
Long. R vears old. It was as follows: 

Whenever I am among the juniors, it 
teems homolike and I feel that I am 
among friends. You don't kmw how glad 
1 am that the juniors of the Morley 
church have part in this great conven- 
tion of thp Endeavorers of the state, and 
that the junior societies of Duluth have 
been given a whole hour to themselves 
on the program. I like to run things, 
sometimes, don't you? And so I am glad 
that we little people can run some of this 
big convention ourselves, and not let the 
big people ruti it all. For once, then, we 
little p«K)ple have a chance to do some- 
thing without the big people bother- 
ing us. 

The Junior Endeavor society, I think, 
often does as much good in the churches 
»s the bigger societies. They are as good 
workers as anybody. A bee isn't very 
big, but when he takes a notion he can 
make it pretty lively in his neighbor- 
hcrnd. And so we juniors can make it 
lively, when we get to work, though we 
don't mean to sting anytKDdy. We can 
help the churches a whole lot, and if 
they get discouraged they can come into 
our meetings and we juniors can cheer 
them up. 

Sometime ago our society heard of a 
church at the West End without a mini- 
ster and we helped them a little to pay a 
minister for a month. We can get little 
folks to come to our society, and when 
little folks get to be big folks, if they 
keep the pledge, they will be Christian 
men and women ready to go into the 
churches and help them along. Is it any 
wonder we think a good deal of our so- 
cieties, and that we want to grow up 
Christians who are faithful to the Lord? 
There are so many ways in which the 
Juniors can make themselves useful and 
so many kind deeds they can do. When I 
was sick with that terrible dl.-^ ase, diph- 
theria, some lime ago, how glad I was 
because our society remembered me and 
sent m° beautiful rf>ses. It was very nice 
to be remembfr^d when sick. Sometimes 
we give socials to raise money for th-^- 
Lord's work. I think societies are groat 
fun. I ronnember one that we had with 
our friend Mr. Newell, where wo had 
lots of nice things going on: g^mes. reci- 
tations, solos, magic lantorns. How many 
of you Juniors ever saw a ma^ic lantern? 
What beautiful pictures they make! Let 
us as juniors try to hve so that our lives 
will make beautiful pictures for God to 
look at; and last, but not least, splendid 
refreshments, three kinds of cake, lemon- 
ade, and other things that boys like, and 
girl." too for that matter. We raised fl2.r.n 
at this social and were able to give $10 
to the convention fund. I think it was 
the very first money given for that pur- 
pose by any Duluth society, so you see 
we juniors can do somi-'thing when we 
Set about it and keep trying. 

The weekly junior meetings do much 
good to all of us and I know we t;njoy 
them very much. At first it seemed a 
little funny for so many little people to 
run their own meetings, and it really did 
seam easier sometimes to cut up a few 
monkey shines, than to do our part. Now 
it seems just as easy to behave, because 
we are interested, and know better what 
we are doing, and that what little we do 
is done for the Savior, and if our work 
dofs only count a little, we know He re-. 
m'--mhers it is the Avork of littln people. 

That pledge of ours is a great thing 
ar>d helps us in many way.s. It is a good 
thing to pray too and though wc are just 
learning to pray in our society. I know it 
is going to help us morr and more as we 
get used to taking part in that service. 
It's prettv hard though, at t^t. to get 
used to pViayiirg in meeting. It makes us 
feel ttfmftlmi^ft aa tmtti^ XUi.M ¥^^^. 

to say, and yet we want to pray, and we 
Intend to keep on trying until we can tell 
God Just tTle things we want to tell him. 

The testimony part of our menings Is 
the best because nearly all the t>oyB and 
1 girls take part. We don't have many ab- 
50, I sent members and the lookout committee 
,,, has a pretty easy time of It. We have 
money In our treasury, and we are keep- 
ing It for the Lord's work. It goes In a 
good many ways; we give to the mis- 
sionaries; we send flowers to tn<? sick; 
we help the poor, and It fTie church gets 
very hard up we give them a lift too. 
The biggest kind of big people can't do 
much more than that. 

Most of thi' junior societlf's do this 
same work, and so I have told you these 
things. be«»usf It seeina good for \is tii 
ttll each other just what we are trying 
to do and how we got along. Some folks 
may poke fun at little pt^)plc, but we are 
the people just the same, and we stand 
all right with God. He Is more interest- 
ed in little people than in big folks. I 
think it is in Matthew it tells of Jesus 
.saying: "Suffer little children to come 
unto me. for of such is the kingdom of 
heaven." It was the children's turn tlien 
with Jesus, and he took them right np 
In His arms. whlK- the big people had to 
stand back. Tt Is the children's turn now 
with Jesus, and let us try and remember 
that if we Juniors are going to be "of the 
kingdom of heaven" we have got to bo 
very careful what kind of children we 
are, that we may always be ready to go 
to Him when He wants us without being 
ashamed. And so let's all try to be like 
Him. as Juniors, for He was a junior 
when He was 12 years old. and tried to 
do the Lord's work. So will we do the 
work He wants us to do, that we may see 
Him and be like Him when our lives are 
over and our work complete. 

Did vou ever think what a great con- 
vention of Christian Endeavorers there 
will be In heaven? Thousands, yes mil- 
liens, will be there. You and I will be 
there, and I Just tell you If the Juniors 
do their duty now. they won't all be on 
the back seats in heaven. 

Let us work harder, let us pray harder, 
let us remember our pledges, let us do 
the things our little hands and hbarts 
can do. It all counts, and with Jesus as 
our helper, who can tell how much we 
may not do, even as little people. Let us 
try to do our share to scatter happiness 
every day, everywhere. 

I am glad for this chance to speak to 
you this afternoon, and in thankmg you 
for your attention, I ask the good God to 
bless and keep you all. big and little, his 
faithful Christian Endeavorers. 

During the afternoon the following 
committees were appointed: Pulpit sup- 
ply committee, Rev. C. H. Patton, Rev. 
W. W. Dawley, Mr. McLeod, of Minne- 
apolis; commiittee on evangelistic eflforts, 
W. W. Newell, chairman, R. F. Mc- 
Eldowney, J. H. Petran, Albert Lea; A. 
A. Stone, Minneapolis; J. H. Geary. 
Cream; A. A. Robertson. Winona. 

The great Assembly hall at the High 
School was completely crowded with 
enthusiastic Endeavorers at night. The 
session opened with a service of song, 
and everyone sang, "Onward, Christian 
Soldiers," "Throw Out the Lifeline" and 
"There is Sunlight In My Soul." Then 
Dr. Ingersoll, of St. Paul, read the sixty- 
second chapter of Isaiah and followed 
with a brief but impressive invocation. 

Some announcements followed, and 
then President Hunt spoke of the illness 
of Congressman Towne, who was to 
have welcomed the Endeavorers for the 
city, and George E. Arbury was then in- 
troduced to take the part allotted to Mr. 

A round of applause greeted the speak- 
er as he advanced on the platform, Mr. 
Arbury spoke as follows: 

Mr. Chairman, Fellow-Endeavorera: 
It has ever been my lot tp either take 
the place of a sick man or a dead man. 
I have been called upon to perform an 
impossible task. I believe you will say 
that it would have been impossible for 
Mr. To\^'ne to have performed it, hence 
I am somewhat pacified. 

It seems to me that we might say that 
the millenlum In the organization of pub- 
lic association has been reached, when 
one can stand before a large representa- 
tive association as is before us tonight, 
wherein the spiftt of ordinary politics 
or oi personal selfishness does not in any 
way exist ; where the only spirit, the only 
purpose and the only desire in the hearts 
of all is the betterment of mankind, and 
to that end I have anticipated a great 
treat in expecting to hear a speech from 
the greatest of political orators. Con- 
gressman Towne. (Applause.) 

Ordinarily, when one Is called upon to 
greet visitors in an official way, he is ex- 
pected to assure them that the mayor 
and the chief of police will deliver ovor 
the keys. I am not required nor per- 
mitted nor expected to make this promise 
here tonight. It is absolutely unneces- 
sary. The chief executive , of the city 
will not instruct the powers that be in 
reference to their conduct towards this 
convention. But the doors and avenues 
into all places where honorable men and 
women desire to go involuntarily swing 
open. And in behalf of the city of Du- 
luth I will simply say that words not 
only fall me. but fail all of us, to express 
what is in our hearts in reference to our 
welcome towards you. It is indeed a 
very serious and solemn and sacred hour. 
Trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ for 
strength, we have in convention as- 
sembled for the purpose of honoring H^m 
and elevating mankind. But I want to 
say, hcrwever, that while we have had 
some difllculty in the past few years in 
meeting our notes, yet we have always 

bllity, your beauty and your blessings, 
your growth and your greatness, your 
patience and your piety, your songs 
and your sweetness, your Works and 
your wladora^ and we have watched for 
you as those who watch for the morn- 
ing. We are yours, and all that we have 
are yours, yours to enjoy, if not to car- 
ry away. . Go ;thi;d\i«fh our streets' to, 
admire them, enter In to our homes to 
lodge In them, sit at our tables to eat 
from them, climb our "hill and weary 
not, sniff the breese of the lake and 
the dust of the streets and sneeze not. 
ride on the palpitating bosom of our 
lake and our great Incline and fear not, 
for the lake has never deserted us and 
the incline is chained. Walk In the 
wuMS of your hearts and In the sight of 
yoiu' eyes, and whatsoever your hearts 
find to do. do It with your might, eating 
and drinking what Is set before you, 
asking no questions for conscience's 
sake or your stomat-h's sake. 

As pastitrs we welcome you as repre- 
sentatives of «)ne oi" our most valuoil 
helpers and aids. What disheartens 
and dispirits mankind Is not the dlfli- 
cultles and dangers that confront him, 
not the powers pitted against him, not 
the work awaiting him, but the feeble- 
ness and fewness of the workers with 
him. What wrung the courage out of 
the heart of the once heroic Elijah was 
not the widespread Baal-worshlp that 
had demoralized the people, but the 
fact that he felt that he was alone. 
You remember that his pathetic cry 
was: "I. even I only, am left." Had 
Elijah only known that there were 
e\*en three hundred, though hidden In 
the cave, with what renewed courage 
and heroism would he have faced the 
enraged queen and her mighty allies! 
It was the coming out to Apptl Forum 
and Three Taverns of a few brethren 
to meet the prisoner in chains on the 
old Applan way that Inspirited the heart 
of the prisoner and made him say, "I 
thanked God and took courage." So 
what cheers and encourages us Is the 
knowledge that wo are not alone, for 
we see that we have with us and ready, 
to back us a mighty host — a host of 
workers in the bloom and buoyancy 
of youth, fired with power and prowess, 
vigor and valor. You may not have the 
wisdom of our fathers, but neither have 
you their weakness. Enthusiastic and 
enlightened, you are an Inspiration to 
us, and we rejoice In you and hope for 
great things from you. 

We welcome you as those who have 
had their eyes opened. A boy once 
went to an Episcopal clergyman to sell 
a kitten, and the clergyman asked the 
boy what kind of a kitten It was. "It 
is an Episcopalian," was the reply. 
A few days after he saw the lad coming 
up his steps again with the kitten, and 
thinking to have a little sport with the 
boy, he had the woman of the house 
ask him what kind of a kitten it was. 
"It Is a Methodist," was the prompt 
reply. "Ah," said the clergyman as 
he made his appearance," I thought you 
told me the other day that it was an 
Episcopalian." "So I did," said the 
boy, '"but it has got his eyes opened 
since that time." So we welcome you 
as a band of young people who have 
got your eyes opened. If you are not 
all Methodists — opened to see the 
mighty possibilities that lie enfolded 
within you, opened to the realization 
of the great work that lies before you 
and the matchless rewards that await 

We welcome you as not only those 
who have their eyes opened to their 
work, but also as those who are ready 
to do their work now. The great work 
most people are going to do is always 
quite a ways ahead. Beecher once 
said: "All of my people want to go to 
heaven, but not one of them wants to 
go now." But you are a band of jioung 
people ready for service now. The 
heaviest burdens that we have to bear 
are in the future, the sweetest joys that 
we have are ahead of us, our fancy 
adding much to the gloom or the bright- 
ness of the path that is before us. So 
with most people the duties that they 
are so willing to discharge are always 
Just far enough ahead of them so that 
they cannot quite reach them. Hence 
they are always going to do something, 
but rarely get at it. But we recognize 
In you a heroic body of toilers who 
stand ready for present and actual 
work, only waiting the word "go." 

You are also a united body, hound to- 
gether not b.v political affiliations, for 
we do not all vote the same ticket, 
nor are you cemented by corrimon edu- 
cational Influences for wc have not all 
boon taught In the same schools. 
Neither are wo hold together by any 
slnglo dogma, but wc are united in hf>ly 
and. abiding fellowship by our loyalty 
to a person, the Lord Josus Christ who 
[ is "God manifest in the flesh, justified 
I in the spirit, soon of angels, preached 
unto the Gentiles, roc4>lvod up in to 
glory." Bound together l>y this indis- 
soluble devotion to our common Lord 
and Master, wo bid you enter into our 
gates with joy and into our homos 
with thank.sgivlng. Welcome! wc- 
come! yea thrice welcome to you all. 

The president introduced tho next 
speaker, saying: "Rev. Mr. Dawley .said 
in his remarks that he had been waiting 
for the convention. I will next intro- 
duce a man who has worked long and 
faithfully for Its success— Rev. W. W. 
Newell, of the committee of '^T^." 

There was another burst of applause, 
and Mr. Newell made a witty little ad- 
dress filled with anecdotes that kept the 
audience laughing. In the course of his 
remarks Mr. Newell felicitated the com- 
mittee on its work individually and col- 


tlnuous. Faithfulness Is faith in ac- 
tion. The Endeavorer Tuelli-vea himself 
to have found in the distinctive fea- 
tures of this society the secret of har- 
nessing tho machinery of his daily life 
to the on-going might of the power of 
God; believes that through the pledge 
he has discovered within the depths of 
his own soul a^ sprocket wheel, if I 
may so spe«ik, over which we may, if 
we win, throw the whirling activities 
of the Holy Ghost. Because we have 
been led in God's good pleasure to do 
this, we do claim as Christian En- 
deavorers to have a decided superior- 
ity over what we were before we be- 
<ame Endeavorers. 

If we ate in any way different iatwl 
fiom fiur friends who have not yt t be- 
come l'n<leavoivr.s, it Is thai we are 
bound 111 swoeter, stronger and more 
voluntary chains tef bond-servant.slilp 
to our Divine Master. We are Ills for 
service. In a remote rural shiiv In l-'ng- 
land they tiil us there is still running 
one of those old-fash lonetl stag ' 
I'oaches whif-li carry first, second and 
thinl cla^-s p:is^eiigei'T. An AmeiWaii 
geiUleman chanced to bo fKisiing that 
way, and when he took the stag<\ wis 
very cuiious to know what constituted 
tho difference between tho classes as 
they all enjoyed the same priv- 
ileges. My and by they camo 
to a .steej) hill, and the driver 
stopped and called down from his seat 
into the coach: "First class passengei-s, 
keep your seats; secondi class passen- 
gers, get out and walk; third class, pas- 
sengers, got out and push." Endeavor- 
ers Tire third class pa.ssengers In the 
gospel chariot. We are In the Lord's ser- 
vice to push thing's. 

And I may sum up very briefly why 
we have come togoither in this modei-n 
Thossalonlca at the apex of the world's 
greatest fresh water sea. We are here to 
become saturated with the Endeavor 
idea; to become awakened to the best 
foi-ms of Endeavor activity; to culti- 
vate and practice the spiritual art of 
interdenominational fellowship; and. 
lastly, to leave upon the citizens o£ 
Duluth, may we not hope, an Impress 
favorable to Christ by our behavior. 

It ha.s always been my pleasure to 
maintain that the Christian Endeavor 
idea is an importation Into any com- 
munity from without; and that, there- 
fore, the first duty of ever>- young man 
or your.,g woman who would wear the 
Endeavor name and badge, is to thor- 
oughly acquaint himself with the con- 
stitution, purpose and spirit <if the so- 
ciety as it is conceived by those who 
have been its prime movers and. who 
know It best. We are no more at 
liberty to assume the Endeavor name 
for a local six-lety that means to be- 
come Just what It chooses, than was 
early Christianity To modify the gospel 
to suit every whim of local conditions. 
If Christian Endeavor is the spiritual 
union of pledge, prayer meeting, con- 
secration and committee work, then 
pledge, pi-ayer, consecration and com- 
mittee we must have in spirit and in 
power, and not in form only, or we 
are no Endeavor society. We 
must be willing, therefore, to go to 
the abundant sources of Christian En- 
deavor intelligence and there sji-turate 
ourselves with the conception as for- 
mulated by our progressive leader. 
Father P^ndeavor Clark, and his es- 
teemed a.ssociates. We believe conven- 
tions like this to be of almos,t inestim- 
able value in keeping us abreast of the 
development of our germinal idea. 

We are here also to catch the en- 
thusiasm of numbers, to see face to 
face some of the seventy times seven 
thousand that have not bowed the knee 
to Baal; t«) learn, to be stirred while 
here to inventive genius hi spiritual 
mechanisms, and go home not as 
wc came — delegates from home — but to 
go home as delegates from this conven- 
tion to our local societies, to carry its 
fire and spirit back Into the hearts of 
the dear companions there who have 
not been permitted to enjoy this high 
privilege with us. 

And we are hero to put into practice 
v.hat Dr. Clark has set before us as one 
of the distinctive functions of conven- 
tions, to enjoy the fellowship of the 
kingdom as expressed in a gathoiing 
of the "undivided evangelical young 
Iioople" of Minnesota. Wc are to havo, 
it is true, our denominational rallies, 
but God foibid that into t^ny one of 
them, when a.s s<mR of God we come to 
present our.s<ives before tho Lord, 
SaUin should come also in the ambition 
to "glorify a se<;t." We have our les.sor 
t log, our family gatherings; Go<l Moss 
them and mak-- our lovo to abound s<-) 
that wo shall have en«nigh and to 
spare for cv«'ry oitizon of tho holy 
Jerusalem. Hut while tho avhII.s of 
dwellings may sei»ni to s«'pHfato 
round about us. encinling all 
homes, lists a jasper w.iU great 
high, having twelve gates and at 
gates twelve angels-— a wall 
eternal masonry is our common 
fenso, whoso cirumvallation binds 
a common citiziiiship. 

Lasllv. wo aiv here to leave nu 
press, to give our Master a 
actor, a reputation among 
who look upon us as 
throng the streets, and as we 
hospitality of these kindly 

had the reputation, and still maintain loctively, and renewed the assurances of 

that reputation, of fulfilling ail our 
pledges, and I know what that means 
to some extent in reference to this con- 
vention, because our eloquent, our ear- 
nest, our zealous Mr. Dawley was in 
Winona last year and made a speech. 
1 do not know! what that speech was, ex- 
cept what I have heard; but I have no 
doubt that in the zeal and earnestness 
with which he presented the claims of 
Duluth to this convention, that he madt- 
as deep a draught upon the hospitality 
of Duluth, upon the exchequer of its 
hospitality, as lay in his power. But I 
say. fellow-Endeavorers. we are pro- 
pared to redeem every pledge he made, 
even to giving you a ride on tho waters 
of this un.salted, unruly sea. We know 
tho wc«athor is bad, and likely to be bad 
tomorrow, but wo assure you we can 
stand it if you can. Our boats and our 
coroner are at your service. 

Now. as only ten minutes were allotto<l 
to me, and it takes me twenty minutes to 
make a speech, you will have to get 
along with the Introduction or part of the 
Introduction. But when this convention 
is ended and its deeds have pas.sed into 
history, let us all hope that, we have re- 
ceived an individual and collective bene- 
fit, and that Christ's kingdom has been 
advanced on the earth, and that wo as 
soldiers of the Cross may endeavor to do 
His will. (Applause.) 

When the applause had died away. 
Rev. W. W. Dawley was introduced to 
deliver the welcoming address on behalf 
of the clergy, and he .said: 

Co-workers with God and with us; 
I trust that nothing of all that has been 
promised you will be lacking to you. 
In behalf of the clergy of Duluth I bid 
you welcome. A long time have we 
waited for you. and you have done well 
that you did come. Our oxen and our 
fallings are killed, our potatoes are 
dug. our tables are spread, our beds ar-* 
made, and our doors are open. "All 
things are ready," and. we bid you como 
in. In a labor day procession In one of 
our cities some time ago was soon a 
banner with this inscription: "Labor 
runs tho bakery, but monopoly takes

Then there was more applause, and 
President Hunt Introduced Rev. W. C. 
.\. Wallar, of Fergus Falls, to respond 
for the visitors. His address was as fol- 
lows : 

Mr. President, Fellow Endeavorers 

and Citizens of Duluth: 

In response to your invitation ox- 
tended a year ago, we are here. That 
Invitation assuied us that >''ou wanted 
us to convene in >yjur cWy. Tho cordial 
wokomes to which we havf listeni-d 
piove thait you are n'T^t, ui> to tliit* lime, 
at least, sick of your biugiin. Tliat 
is a wise custom whi<ii puts thf wol- 
c< mo well (owani llu- fnint on a con- 
vention program. For those words of 
gonoi-ous greeting, wo thank you. 

I am told that I li^vo ton minutes in 
which to introduro ourselves and liil 
you why wo are here. We c<>rtainl.v do 
not need much of an Introduction to 
any intelligent audience in these da.\s. 
I was In Chicago in tho yciiir 18SS. wlion 
the national convent i«in v,as held tlioinf, 
p,nd I know that several of the citizens 
of that wicked Windy City found 
time to leave their pork and their 
boodle long enough to inquire what 
those meotlngH in thr Expo.-^itlon build- 
ing meairt. I know too that (hou:sands 
upon thousands of them did not know 
there was such a thing a.s a Christian 
End'iavor society. But such could be tht 
case now in no humblest hamh t of 
our country, certainly not in a city

I may be pardoned even here, how- for saying two things in refer-

At the close ck Rev. Wallar's remarks 
the choir sang West's "The Lord Is Ex- 
alted." and President Hunt Introduced 
as the speaker of the evening Dr. L. A. 
Crandall. of Chicago. His subject was 
"Interdenominational Fellowship," and 
his address was as follows: 

In the words of anbther, "we are con- 
fronted by a condition and not a theory." 
Not only do some Christian workers 
claim that Christian Endeavor is not 
adapted for all denominations, but they 
give this claim significance by forming 
distinctively denominational wjcletles In 
the bodies which thf y represent. A few 
believe that Christian Endeavor lui- 
nlshes the Ideal organization for the 
local society, but oljjcct to the extra local 
featui'-s found in city or county unions, 
state conventions and the international 
oonvLMdlons. There are others who ob- 
ject to the whole system, root and 
branch, and assert that each denomina- 
tion should have its own distinctive so- 
ciety, stamped wilh the trade mark of 
that particular .sect, and subject to no In- 
ningeinent. In view of all this it be- 
comes tiecessary for us to consider care- 
fully the objcetlons urged against Chris- 
tian Endeavor as an Inter-denominatlon- 
al organization, and also to ascertain lhi=- 
ways in which such inter-relations 
among the young peoj>le of different 
bodies may be helpful. 

One of the objections urged against 
Christian Endeavor is that It was origin- 
ated by a Congregational kst. We take it 
for granted that those who bring this 
Indlotment have no special feeling of ani- 
mosity against Dr. Clark or the body of 
Christians of which he is a member. 
They simply mean to imply that a thing 
that would have been most excellent if 
begotten by a member of their own sect 
loses a lai-ge part of its excellence by 
being brought into the world by a rep- 
resentative of another denomination. 
There is much human nature, if little 
sense, in this objection. I remember 
that when I was a small boy my father 
brought home .«onie eggs which, he said. . 
had been laid by Baptist hens. I im- 
mediately concluded that these eggs 
would have a special delicacy of flavor, 
and was not a little disappointed to find 
that in appearance and taste they dif- 
fered not a whit from eggs bought at the 
grocery of unlrnown ecclesiastical parent- 
age. We hav" a natural predilection for 
that which is our own, and ownership is 
doubled in significance when liased upon 
origination. But what paupers the most 
of us would become, morally and intel- 
lectually, were we to reject from our 
equipment all that has come Into our 
possession from of other faiths 
than our own. "Lead Kindly Light" has 
been the prayer of many troubled souls 
who gave no thought to the 
fact that he who formed it 
died a loyal son and honored 
cardinal of the Roman Catholic church. 
"Nearer. My Gofl. to Thee" voices the 
hmgings of aspiring 'souls everywhere, 
even though she who gave it being was a 

Let us lay hold of t^o good wherever 
we find It. A great thought Is the com- 
mon heritage of the race. To reject that 
which had not its beginnings in the con- 
fines of our sect is to rob ourselves of 
power and Joy. 

But another objects that a society of 
Christian Endeavor is not denomina- 
tional. "We must have an organiza- 
tion." says this objector, "that is de- 
nominational." Will some one tell us 
what a society of Christian Endeavor in 
M. E. church Is If not Methodist? The 
oflicers and members are all Methodists. 
It is in and of and suljject to that 
church. Loyalty to the denomination 
and to the local church is emphasized 
constantly and strongly. Is a Sunday 
school, studying the International les- 
sons, less a denominational school be- thousands of schools representing 
other sects are studying the same lessons 
and u.sing the .same methods. "But," the 
objector adds, "there is no opportunity 
in an international organization to in- 
doctrinate the young people. They can- 
not be educated In the distinctive tenets 
of their faith." Why not? Do we teach 
distinctive truths in the mass meeting? 
There is just one person to be hold re- 
sponsible for tho doctrinal training of 
young as well as old— the pastor. If he 
neglects his opportunity, the work will 
go undone. If he is faithful, the Chris- 
tian ?::ndoavor .S(X?iety In the local church 
affords an abundant opportunity for 
doctrinal training as anyone could 

But another objection, and that the 
one most frequently urged, remains. 
Tt is said that wc must have a strictly 
ilcnominational society in order to "hold 
our young people." The contention is 
thai "if a Baptist young man moots a 
Presbyterian young woman in a Chris- 
tian Endeavor union mooting a life part- 
nership may bo formed. Horrible 
thought! TiOt us at once voice the Scrip- 
tural coniniaiidnunt so that it shall road. 
"Let no BaptKst man be unequally yoked 
with a Presbyterian woman." This fear 
of losing our young i>eople if they be 
permitted to mingle freely with the 
young people of other religious bodies 
ilocs not argue wi>ll for our confidence in 
the Impregnability of our position. No 
denomination can long serve in this 
age and land which is builded upon the 
ignorance and isolation of its members. 
The only loyalty worth having is that 
which rests upon an intelligent compari- 
son of beliefs. A glass case is a good 
place for relics but a poor place for liv- 
ing men; and the denomination which 
undertakes to confine its young people 
therein will soon find the case shattered 
and the young people gone. 

Turning, now. to the other side of this 
question, let us look at some of the ad- 
vantages of interdenominational fellow- 
ship. V.'ere 1 to ask of this body of 
young pwple tonight. "How many have 
been helped spiritually by such gather- 
ings as this?" no doubt the an.swerlng 
••I" would fall from hundreds of lips. 
There is inspiration and uplifting and 
deepening of faith and kindling of zeal 
wiicn the Christians of a city, of a sta,te, 
of a nation meet together to consider 
tho work of the kinsdom. Something of 
this comes, to be sure, when the mem- 
bers of a. single denomination meet to- 
gether; but when we furl our party 
l)anners. and hush our party cries, and 
look beyond our j>arty walls to the king- 
dom of God on earth, then there is a 
warmth in <iur hearts and a thrill of joy 
which wei know under no other condi- 
tions. This may be railed sentiment, 
but there are other and intensely prac- 
tical results. We come together, each 
bringing the berst he has in methods and 
plans of work. These are made common 
i.roportv. and each may bear a\\Ay Ji\l 
that can bo utilized in his own field. The 
oducivtional value of this uniting to- 
gether of roiiresentn lives from difl^erent 
denominations can hardly bo ovcr-csti- 
matod. Hut tho chief value of these in- 
terdenominational relations lies in their 
unifying influence. Just here some good 
brother will doubtless condemii me, for 
there are not a few who bcllcvc- that 
sects are for the. glory of God and the 
advancement of His cause. VV e are told 
that they art upon <.ach other as irr.- 
tants. and incite to an ao.tiv ty such as 
would be unknown were we .iU one body. 
Lftfty motive this. The MethodLst body 
«»trains every nerve to gain converts for 
fear that the BaptL«ts will get ahead of 
them. The Baptists toll eariy and late, 
lest they be outstripped by the Presby- 
.terians. What an edifying spectacle! 
Out with such a degrading conception of 
the religion of Jesus. I am ^ot Ple^J- 
ing now for a flabby, coloriess Chri.=!tian- 
itv. A man who has no convictions no 
" oed i.- like a bag of Jelly with tho bag 
left off. We cannot oil see eye to c-ye. 
But we can come to a better understand- 
ing of each other and to a mea.surft of 
co-operation .such as we have never 

days ha» passed away. We do not often 
quarrel now; we simply let each other 
alone. We are not enemies, neither are 
we allies— except In theory. It Is every 
detiomlnatlon for Itself. The Christianity 
of our day needs nothing so much as 
federation. Grave dangers threaten. 
Great social problems are to be solved. 
Shall we meet these dangers and strive 
to settle these problems as bushwhackers 
or as a great army? There Is tremen- 
dous loss In time and money by present 
methods. When shall we realize this, 
and come close together In <onsultatlon 
and co-operation? Because- 1 Ijolleve 
that the greatest mistake of modern 
<'hri9tianity lies in the useless disin- 
tegration of forces. 1 rejoice in this 
iioiile society and its .splendid exampK- 
of Christian unity and co-operation. 


The Endeavorers wore up betimes 
Saturday morning, and sunrise saw 
them in the Congregational ehurcli 
at their devotions. The subject 
of the sunrise prayer meeting 
wa.s 'Laborers Together Wilh 

God," and it was conducted by Albert 
Geary. Cream, iMlnn. At 9 o'clock a 
song service was conducted, followed by 
devotions led by W. H. Knapp, of Roch- 

The church was again well filled when 
the active business of the convention 
was taken up at 9:30. The first subject 
for discu.ssion was "The Prayer Meet- 
ing Committee," conducted by J. H. 
Taylor, of St. Paul. 

Mr. Taylor opened by saying that the 
convention Is not so much for hearing 
long speeches as to .secure an interchange 
of ideas on the subject. The way one 
society is doing things may be just what 
is needed in another society. Then he 
read a brief paper in substance as fol- 

"I believe that the prayer meeting com- 
mittee is the most important in the so- 
ciety. The Christian Endeavor society 
is distinctly a religious society. Much 
other work enters in and becomes a part 
of it. such as social and literary work, 
but it is subordinate. The society is not 
social or literary, but .essentially a re- 
ligious society. The society which does 
not make the weekly prayer meeting of 
paramount importance does not deserve 
its name. Therefore the prayer meeting 
committee is of the greatest importance, 
as its work is such a prominent part of 
the society. The members should be 
those wno are thoroughly consecrated to 
Christ and His work. They should be 
members upon whom the society may 

"The chairman should be carefully 
selected. The committee is not likely to 
be active if the chairman is inactive, 
and the work v>ill suffer. If you have a 
dull prayer meeting the work of your so- 
ciety fails. Tho .=electIon of leaders for 
the meetings should be carefully made. 
They should be peoplb who can grasp 
and carry out the topics of the meetings. 
And do not foi-get to pray earnestly for 
the meetings. If care is observed in all 
these things and others, your society will 
be a power in the church." 

A thorough, helpful and interesting dis- 
cussion followed, in which a number of 
ideas of much value were brought out 
and discussed. There was a difference 
in opinions, of course, but the ideas were 
wholesome and valuable. 

Next was a free parliament on "The 
Lookout Committee," conducted by Dr. 
Jonnette McLaren, of St. Paul. "Each 
one of us," she said, "no matter whafwe 
are or what committee we are on, should 
be a member of this committee, which 
deals especially with the spiritual inter- 
ests of the society. Are we not to bring 
ourselves Into personal relation with 
.souls. The lookout committee is the 
soul winner and soul builder of the so- 

A general discussion of this subject 
followed. In which different methods of 
committee work were brought out and 
discussed-. Some had their committee 
appointed by a nominating committee, 
others by the president. Asked what sort 
of members were appointed, a prompt 
answer camo "the best in the society. " 

Others advlseti putting a small pro- 
portion of new members upon the com- 
mittee. Meetings were held in homes 
of members, in the pastor's homo, on the 
street and wherever two members got 
together. Tho committee in some so- 
cetios kept a record of the members and 
where sfime were note<l to be backward, 
they were assigned to members of the 
cornmittee for personal work. 

Per.sonal work of all kinds was di.s- 
eiissed. such as gettin.t; members of the 
stxietv into the <huivh and getting new 
attendants at tho Endeavor meetings. 
The discussion was long and lively. 
Suggestions and questions wore primipl 
and interesting and the interest was 
sustained until the dose. 

The question of dropping members 
after failure to attend three consecutive 
consecration meetings aroused a lively 
discussion and much difference of opin- 
ion. In closing the leader said that they 
should be careful whom they asked to 
sign the active membei-ship list, that 
they should be capable of keeping the 
pledge they take. 

At this point State President Leffing- 
well. of Wisconsin, spoke a few timely 
words greeting the Minnesota Endeavor- 
ers in the name of the Wisconsin society. 
Then Miss Annie S. Tupper sang Tours' 
"Jesus. Lover of My Soul" in a beautiful 
manner, and the discussion of Christian 
citlzonsViip wns taken up. "The Sabbath 
Side" was discussed by Rev. George W. 
Trower, of Hutchinson, as follows: 
It is a. popular olije<.-ilon that Christ- 
ians should have but little lo do wttb 
politios. Indeed some say it is not wltUin 
the province of a Christian teaeher to Ik; 
interested in the subject of politics. It 
this l>e true conditions have greatly 
changed. The duty of Christianity is as 
Piucli towards .society as towards trie 
church a*- an ecclesiastical organization.

^uch of the asperity and bickering that 
. lisgrececl Uje church of Christ in other 

among physicians but that one-seventh 
of a week spent in rest is an advantage. 
The man who by power of his brain or 
the service of his muscle contributes to 
the world's wealth of mind and matter 
gains greatly in strength and energy by 
a pruiK-r observance of the Sabbath. 

This old doctrine of an old book holds 
In its hands the life, the health, the vir- 
tue and the wisdom of the people who 
observe it. Civilization has made this a 
fundamental law and the experience^ of 
men has confirmed that law which (joA 
gave to his people. The leaders of human 
progress, the conspicuous statesmen ar* 
all on the elde of the Christian church In 
demanding the proper observance of a 
flay of r^-st. Adam Smith said: "Thw 
Sabbath as a poliftloal institution is of 
inestimable value, indepetid.-nt of tnit 
claim to divine authority." l^aiiiel Wet>- 
fj.ter said: "The longer I \\\i. the more 
highly do I esteem the Christian S.itdia'.h 
and the more grateful do I fet.-l loward 
those who Impress its Importance upon 
the cornmuiiliy." Hlackstone addn his 
testimony: "A corruption of morals usu- 
ally follows the jirofanation of th<j Sab- 
bath." There is no question but that 
this i^hase of Christian citizenship needs 
to be emi^hasized. 

The experience of Theodore 
and his colleagues of the New York police 
board ha,H Indicated that public opinion 
U-: not unanimously in favor of Sunday 
la^\.s. Thin is partly accounted lor b',- 
eaus<^ people ar<- not educated to realize 
the advantasre of such a law, and becaus<j 
of thi- inti\>duotion of the coniinenial 
Sabbath by a, class of foreigners who 
have not yet begun to appreciate the 
spirit of our American institutions. 

There is the evil of a too strict obser- 
vance of the day. A lady in Edinburgh 
was walking on the .street one Sunday 
morning w iih her pet dog, when the ani- 
mal strayed from her and seeing a man 
who was very drunk she asked him if h*; 
would be kind enough to v,histle for the 
dog. "Madam. I am ashamed of ye, to 
ask a decent body like me to violate the 
holy Sabbath day by whistling." If we 
demand too stringent laws we shall not 
l>e apt to meet with the desired result 
in educaiing^ the people to appreciate the 
advantages of a day of rest. On the 
other hand we are in danger of having 
forcpd upon us ihe continental Sabbath. 
In Chicago and other cities one may set* 
the disadvantage of such an Institution. 
Here one may see the theaters in full 
blast, and the lower and more degrading 
the exhibition the more conspicuous it 
makes itself. The dime museums fill the 
streets with their painted and realistic 
atrocities. The gin shops and the haunts 
of evil advertise profusely, and those 
things which minister to the lowest 
tastes are made m.ost conspicuous. There 
is nothing noble, nothing elevating, noth- 
ing spiritualizing alxiut all this, but 
everything that fs degrading and sinful. 
And so when a Christian citizen seeks 
to bring aljout a proper observance of 
the day of rest he is between Scylla and 
Char>bdis. But the farming and passage 
and enforcement of intelligent Christian 
Sunday laws is certainly for the advan- 
tage of society. 

The essential principle of one day In 
seven for re-st is subservient to the qur-s- 
tion of what day should be kept. But we 
t>eUeve that one day of rest and a law 
d.3manding such is essential for the good 
especially of those who are too weak and 
indifferent to demand this right for them- 

If there Is any one class of meu it will 
Ijenefit more than anotlTer it Is the work- 
ing claims, for unless they awaken to rea- 
lize their right to a rest day. unless they 
d'/mand that they lie given some time 
to worship God and to cultivate the soul 
and the intellect, the time will come 
when the employer, already too often 
Inconsiderate of the needs of his em- 
ploye, will demand seven days work at 
six days pay. and he will become a mer'- 
machine, an automaton without any voli- 
tion of his own. 

Our national security requires tho ac- 
tive support of all good citizens in main- 
taining the laws that alreadv exist. The 
question almost directly efTfcts temiK?r- 
ance legislation and labor legislation. It 
enters into the settlement of all moral 
questions which come before the Ameri- 
can people for their decision, a proper 
Sabliath law properly observed will prreat- 
ly influence the whole character of the 
commonwealth as well as of the indi- 
vidual. The chief violators of Sunday 
laws are in the city and it has been re- 
freshing to learn how succet'sfuUy the 
New York police commissioners have en- 
forced the laws. They were professedly 
enacted both for the iK-nefit of the saloon 
men. who were most conspicuous in the 
violation of the law. and for the police- 
men who derived a large part of their 
income from blackmail. It was intendcl 
to secure the allegiance of church going 
people and to provide a weai>on where- 
with to blackmail the saloon keepers 
into the .supiK)rt of Tammany. The church 
people were satisfied so long a-s the law 
was on the statute books but they made 
no effort to enforce it. The men who 
were prominent politicians, and who 
could afford to pay the police, opened 
their .saloons all day Sunday. Tho.«e who 
were too poor to pay the blackmail were 
vigilantly watched and arrf^sttd wh-^-n 
they violated the law. The problem that 
came before these New York commis- 
sioners was a great one and the law hts 
acted up^n the salo^m ke^pt^rs like a 
lx)omerang, for these faithful officers 
have enforced the laws against tho ri'h 
saloon keeper and the poor one. nn<l 
compelled ihe ]>olice to arrest every \ 'O- 
l.Tlor withoiii tear or favor. And Theo- 
dore Roosevelt declares that the liquor 
dealers association admiite<i that "nine- 
tenths of th<^ liquor dealers had be*n ren- 
dered bankrupt we had .slopp- i 
that illegal trade which gave them the 
l>,v«--t portion of their rovenuo." He ron- 
tinuoii. "we have conquered, wo have 
not stoi)ped all Sunday drinking in the 
saK>ons, anv more than we have stopi" d 
all theft, but we have .«ucre<'ded in se- 
curing the partial closiniT oT the salooii;. 
on Sundav.' The moral reformat loti 
Kivcji impulse by Dr. C. H. Parklnir.^ 
which rcsulled in the overthrow of Tain- 
manv Hall and the rigid enforcement of 
the "laws has taught Christian citizens 
that they are a more important force 
than they have ever realized themselves 

The* advantage* of Christian partici- 
pation in politics are many. Ii means that 
right laws will be made, that they will 
be more Impartial, that they will be in 
favor of the weakest, that they will be 
above all for the general moral good of 
the community. Our laws will be very 
largelv like the character of those who 
make "them. If a Christian forms a law- 
it will be more apt to be a Christian law. 
Thp proper enforcement of laws concern-

Henr>' J- Petran of Albert Lea. spoke 
on "The Temperance Side" as follows; 

■Uliat can Christian Endeavorers do to 
promote total abstinence and the sup- 
pression cf rum-rule and traffic" 

T'.iis is the question 1 am to answer. 
That every Christian Endeavorer should 
do something, and do that something 
with his miarht. can not be denied, in the 
face of the appalling ruin wrought by the 
drink trade everywhere. 

To b? indifferent to the duty of waging 
a continual warfart* atjainst this monster 
of Iniquity is to be guilty of an Inex- 
cusable lack of the very essence of real 
Christian Endeavor — a high sense of th> 
duty to in every way .suppress wronsr '«nd 
uplift right. Yet there are many so- 
cieties without even a temperance com- 
mittee and iiuuiy more that are doing 
little for the suppression of Intemper- 
ance. Christian Endeavorcrs. these 
things ought not so to be. Every so- 
ciety should have a temperance commit- 
tee, and every society should, in some 
a«rere«s1vp manner. b»> engtig.'d in thi^ 
warfare against the demon alcohol. But 
what can Christian Endeavorers do in 
thl3 great battle? In what way can 
they accomplish real results? My pur- 
pose this morning is to give some ways 
in which Endeavorers may obtain results 
in the work. 

I. Study — Study every phase of the 
temperance work. Study the state l.iws, 
the city laws. Know just what a 
weapon you have in your hand to use on 
lawbreakers. Study the trafTlc in your 
own city, the number of places wh^^re 
liquor is sold; saloon?, drug stores, blind 
pig?, hotels, and the like. Ascertain th-^ 
character of thesie places, the games 
played by the pictures exposed to view. 
Find out the character of the habitues of 
these places. A^wrtaln especially the 
names and ages of the minors who are 
patronizing the saloons In your town. 

Study the statistics of the traffic and 
the ruin it brings, and in every way be 
thoroughly posted on facts. Knowledge 
is power, and this knowledge will be p 
power In arousing yourself, your society, 
your church and your community to 

II. Instruct — Next instruct your so- 
ciety thoroughly as to the facts you 
have learned. Nothing will so arouse the 
intere-!t and call forth the effort as a 
knowleds? of the exact status of the 
traffic in general, and in one's <>wn city in 
particular. Lack of knowledge is re- 
sponsible for the lack of interest In many 
societies. A thoroughly instru:"ted so- 
ciety will find seme way in which to 
work. Therefore instruct— by talks, by 
lectures, by charts, by object lessons, by 
any thing that will accomplish the pur- 

Neal I>ow has j«aid that before the 
amendment of the constitution of the 
state of Maine was adopted, temperance 
literature was .scattered knee-deep 
thrnusfhout its borders. 

III. Visit— Visit the saloons regularly. 
For this purpose a committee of the best 
young mfn in the six;iety should be se- 
lected. They should visit the saloons 
r-^prularly. at least once each week. In 
this visitation work many things may 
bf accomplished. Printed and personal 
invitation' should be given to the church 
services. Gospel tracts should be given 
to every customer, as well as the pror 
prietor and bartenders — a class of people 
who seldom or never hear the gosnel. 
This I? being done by a Connecticut (West 
Wlnstead) society. 

The names of . minors and habitual 
drunkards should be privately taken, and 
any other data as to the infringement of 
law. One effect of this visitation work 
is the falling off of s<:>me young men a.s 
patrons of the saloon. After being found 
there once or twice they discontinue their 
visits, they do not wish to be esteemed 
habitues of th'? saloon. 

IV. Work — Work to savn individual?- 
who are und>'»r the power of strong drink. 
Thuj work can Im? carrio<l on In many 
ways — by holdlnp special meetings, by 
circulating temperance literature, by ear- 
nest personal work and other ways that 
will suggest themselves. The Endeavor 
six-iety. aided by the pastor, should do 
the work of a regular temperance society. 
It should se»k to rescue the young men. 
and espe<-ially the boys. Th** number of 
minoiT* found in the saloons of our towns 
and cities is appalling. 

Sa!onnke»'»per? everywhere ar*^ entrap- 
ping the youth and converting th^TO into 
customers. These young boys must b- 
rosi'ueil and .«aved. or else they will soon 
be common dnmkards. 

A list of the young men and boys in 
the community wlio drink occasionally 
or habituilly should l« in the hands of 
every t»'mr>erance committee, and special 
• ffort.s sh.tuld b»^ madf for their rescue. 
Thi"! is pra< tiral. especially In the smaller 
t«»wris and cities. 

V. Fnitc — Unite with othT young 
peo;>!v>*s societies and eood citizenship 
organizations to compel officials to f-n- 
forc»- the laws. Officials care little for 
the individual, they have a fair respect 
for a single sf>ciety. but they have a 
wholesome fear of a solid union of all 
go«)d citizenship orcanizations. This has 
Iv^-n proved in a number of cases. 

In Washington. D. C. the Chri.stian 
Endeavor societies united with the Anti- 
saloon league and closed about seventy- 
fiv** saloons. 

In Victor. N. Y.. the Christian Endea- 
vor srx^ieties united and closed up the 
gambling places and illegal saloons. 

In Rochester. N. Y.. the 5000 Endea- 
vorers closed up all the saloons on Sun- 

And in Detroit the Christian Endea- 
vor six-i^ties aided the civic federation 
in closing all the saloons on Sunday. 

By united effort the societies hav<» ac- 
complished many other things. 

In Indiana the Endeavorers helped to 
pass the Nicolson law, which is the hated 
of the saloonkeeper's soul, and today that 
state has two hundred less saloons than 
two years ago. 

In Ontario the Endeavorers helped In 
the plebiscite campaign and carried pro- 
hibition in that province by eighty thou- 
sand majority. 

In Montreal the Endeavorers put In 
clean men. they printed and circulated 
40,000 hand bills a.sking citizens to dis- 
countenance all giocers who sell liquors 
in any shape*, and raus*»d the defeat of a 
very populsr saloon. 

In Kan.«as City. Mo., the Endeavorers 
ortciinlzcd th«^ whole city, closed up five 
saloems on the west side, and organized 
three and Order Ipagues. 

In Sht-nandoah, Iowa, the temperance 
committee of the Endeavor society 
worked for two years and finally got a 
stati? law passed prohibiting the selling 
or giving away of tobacco to those under 
Id years of age. 

And In Syracuse, N. Y.. the local union 
got the veto of a saloonkeeper's ordi- 
nance prohibiting temperance night 
lunch wagons-:. 

VI. Vote — In elections generally about 
75 per c-:nt of the l-;gal voters txercise 
their right and privilege. About 25 per 
cent comrrist; the best 'citizens. The 
lowest and worst classes are always 
fcuiid at the polls. They n;ver fail to 
vrite. Their motto is: -When at first 
you do succeed, try. tr>' again." The 
primaries and cau:;uses are always filled 
with salocnists, barkeepers, turns and 
t">ughs g-en&rally. The good citizen is 
conspicuous fr.r Us absence. The pro- 
f?s?ional politician nil-s, and corrupt 
C'fficlals ani corrupt legislation results. 
Tb-> terms councilman ani .saloonkeeper 
have h?rome well nigh synonymous as 
the result of this continual bum rule. 

The time ha-=5 'I'ome for action. Endea- 
vorers must arise. The young m^-n mu«t 
attend the caucuses. They must bfgln 
to mak'^ their influence felt at the verj- 
source of the evil. And then they must 
vote — not as partisans, hut as Christians 
— solidly against the saloon. And, 
furthermore, they must call out those 


who. while in other wa>'s good citizens, 
fall to exercise their right and their 

Mayor Curtis, of Boston, said during 
the convention in that city that at a 
recent election, out of a registration of 
500.000 votei-s. 15rt.iM)0 failed to vote. 
Think of the gigantic power for good 
thus wholly lost. A rainv election day 
is the saloonlsts delight, but It Is the 
good citlxena woe. Oh, Endeavorers, you 
who have a vote, rally wet or dry, hot or 
cold, for the good and against wrong. 
Let not rum rule while you sit in ease 
at your fireside. Exercise your divine 
right and vote the rummerles out. 

VII. I»ray— After you have done all 
that you can. then pray. Pray for the 
abolition of the drink traffic. Remember 
that tJod rules over all the works of 
mankind. Remember that he has said: 

"Call unto Me and I will aru«wt>r thee 
and show thee great and mighty things 
which thou kriowest not. " uur whi>le 
dt-pendance fiom first to last must l>e 
on Him. Without Him we can do noth- 
ing. With Him nothing is impossible. 

These are some of the things we can 
do to promote goid citizenship on the 
temperance ^^iJt-. Tiiis work is a tjod- 
glv^n work. Let us first of all do it. 
Not simply think about it, talk about it, 
discuss methcHls, but let us do It with our 
might. In no other way can success be 

Rev. H. F. Stillweil. of Minneap dis. 
then spoke on "The Governmental Side. ' 
His talk was rousing and energetic, and 
he grave the impression of* being a thor- 
oughly earnest man. He said that when 
certain of Christ's disciples came to 
Him to inquire about a certain thing 
He said to render unto God the things 
that are God's, and unto Cae.«ar the 
things that are Caesar's. Thus he recog- 
nized the fact that Caesar had some 
:hings. Society rests upon certain foun- 
dations. It is not a haphazard gather- 
ing. The state is not certain boundaries; 
it is men. high-minded men. They are 
the state, and no law can exist that does 
not recognize them. Society rests upon 
the wants of men, and it is what those 
wants have made it. be they good or 

"The state is just what men say 'we 
will do." If they want to make it bad 
they can. The speaker used IngersoU's 
distinction between statesmen and poli- 
ticians. The statesmen are those who 
say 'What can I do for the state?' while 
the politician says 'What can the state 
do for me?' " 

The state expresses itself along the 
line of our lives. We must be interested 
in the state and its government and all 
the problems which confront it. We 
must be interested in the labor problem. 
Shall a man come into our town and say 
that women shall m.ake garments at 4 
cents apiece and button holes at 2 cents 
a dozen, and we have nothing to say 
about It? • 

'Must our children grow up in asso- 
ciation with the fumes of the bottomless 
pit and we say nothing about it?" a.-k» d 
he. "The young pe-ople of the c luntry 
nre now about to reach out and take the 
reins of ge»vemment. They may make it 
what they will. What shall we do to 
make it right? 

".Tesus Christ came to se*k and to save. 
Did you ever hear of His weeping over 
Palestine and Galilee? He went down 
and saved men. We must do that; we 
must get down to the individual to re- 
form a state. It is your business to do 
these things. It is your business to 
Chri.«t. It is yrnir business to know. 

"We want to be after the man. Do 
not be afraid, with the name of the Lord 
of Ho.^its on your side. I>awyers will 
say. "You don't know anythiner about 
these things.' In the name of Heaven. 
I don't want to kniw anything about 
them. Mu--=t we go down into the sewer 
to find out what is there, when we smell 
sewer gas in our hom-^s?" 


Dr. Merrill, of Jlinneapolis. in a short 
talk full of laughable stories and witti- 
cisms, invited the convention in V>ehalf 
eif the city union of Minneapolis to hold 
its tenth annual convention in that city, 
and he promised them that everything 
on earth they wanted they would find 
on the shelf. 

Th? banner for the society showing the 
largest proportionate increase in mem- 
bership was awarded to the Faribault 
Presbyterian six-iety. which has in- 
creased SS fier cent in the- past year. The 
banner is composed of badges from local 
.locieties in the state and from r»tht*r 

The convention then adjourned for the 
ope-n air meetings. 

The leaders v.-ere assigned and the 
convention divided between th'-ni. and 
with their s>>ns l«ives undi-r their amis 
tliis band of young End»nivor«>rs went

In the afternoon the boat ride was

the best imaginable such a trip. After 
the excui-sion denominational rallies

Minneapolis was chosen as the next 
meeting place, and the committee on 
ivsolutions made its repoi^. A rising 
vote of thanks was given Duluth and 
the committee of '9^. also to Professor 
Robinson, of Winona, and Arthur G. 

Telegrams were received from the 
general secretary. John Willis Baer, of 
Boston, the B. Y. P. U. and the Epworth 
League, and greetings were returne<l 
bv the convention. 


The secretary. Miss Carrie A. Hol- 
brook, then read her anual report, for 
which she was given a rising vote of 
thank.". It was as follows: 

Let me paint you a picture. It Is 
morning. We are standing on the sea 
shore. The white sands form a yield- 
ing carpet beneath our feet. The tiny 
wavelets break upon the beach with 
a joyous ripple; and here and there a 
bright shell gleams in the sunlight. 
Overhead the sky is cloudless; and. as 
far as the eye can reach, not an ob- 
ject is discernible acro^ the broad 
expanse of waters, save the wreckage- 
of some unseaworthy vessel which p«er- 
ished in the night and the storm. >Jot 
an object did I say? Look again. Yes. 
there in the distance, far, far away, a 
tiny speck is visible. As we wait and 
watch, it grows larger; it rises and 
falls with the rolling of the waves; and 
now. outlined against the glowing sky. 
we trace the form of a noble ship. Her 
sails are spread. Her banners are fly- 
ing, and she c«mes this way! 

Nearer and nearer, over the sun- 
kissed sea. steadily and proudly she 
approaches the shore. What is he:- 
name? What is her mi.ssion? What 
cargo does she cairy? What human 
freight does she bear? And still wo 
wait, and still we wonder; and still the 
ship sails on! 

But what are they doing? Look! 
over the side a life boat is being low- 
ered. Standing here on the shore of 
the peaceful bay we can scarcely im- 
agine the necessity of a life-boat. But 
the storm king has been abroad an' I 
left his trace on the bosom e>f old 
ocean; and in the track of his chariot 
wheels wreck and death are strewn. 
So the life boat is quickly manned. 
There is no hesitancy, no shrinking. 
Willing hearts respond to the cry of 
the perishing ones; helpful hands grasp 
the oars, and the life-saving crew is 
away on its mission of rescue. But 
while we have been gazing the mo- 
ments have sped by, and now the gal 
lant bark enters the harbor, and cast.; 
anchor, and is still. 

* « « 

Dear friends, it is evening now, and 
we arc awaiting tonight the l.indint: 
of no less fair a vessed than the on-- 
I have described to you. She has been 
just a year making the voyage, and she 
brings treasure from the North Star 
state. *»n her prow. In letters of light. 
w»> read the word "Eneleavor. " She is 
afloat on the ocean of life. Her masts 
arc Chtistian piinciple; her sails are 
consecration; and the breeze whi<!i 
fans them and bears her onward, is 
the breath of the holy spirit. Her 
cable is faith, h.r anchor is hope, and 
ov>T all floa'ts the sn^fwy banner of 
"Miarityj Her main-stay is prayer; her 
signal lights are loyalty and zeal; h>r 
chart is the Bible, and her compas.'- 
conscience. Her figure-head is purpose 
and her rudder is common stnsr-. < 'ri 
the pennant streaminer from the mast- 
head is inscribed her mf»tto: "For Christ 
and the Church!" Her colors are th' 
"red. white and blue;" "God bless OM 
Glory!" The engines which propel her 
thre>ugh the breakers of discourage- 
ment are energy and persistency; anel 
more important than all else, the flre 
which gives life and motion to the 
otherwise stationary craft, is love for 
Him who, watching over her, "Slum- 
bers not nor Sleeps." 

And now for the crew! The com- 
mander's name you all know — Charles 
N. Hunt, the lawyer-evangelist, of 
Minneapolis. His work is arduous, and 
varied, and far-reaching, for he in- 
deed "Sows beside all waters." But no 
weariness wearies, and no discourage- 
ment dlsof>urages; for through all he 
hears the words of promise: "To Htm 
That Soweth Righteousness Shall b • 
a Sure Reward." 

Acting as pilot, your secretary has 
tried as best she might to grulde our 
good ship from the wharf of '94. to the

which ar^- as follows:

from societies in all parts of the state. 
Thousands of leaflets, suggesting plans 
of work for our various committees, as 
also along other well known lines of 
Christian Endeavor, have been freely 

The fifth spoke stands for miles 
ti^velled. "One step and then another 
and the longest walk Is ended." W.-ll. 
that's all right, but it's slow. With 
slight revision it will more correctly 
apply here — "One mile and then an- 
other, and the longest jouniey's 

ended." Yes, that's better: 8200 miles 
represent the secretarial joumeyings 
of '95. 

Spoke six is personal work. Under 
this head may be classed the work 
among local societies. Along this line 
four counties have been thoroughly 
canvassed, besides more scattering 
work done elsewhere. 

If any weak society has been 
strengthened. If only one soul has been 
saved, or even helped, this spoke was 
not placed In the wheel in vain. 

Seventh. "The Minnesota Endeavor- 
er." Each month this little messenger 
has sped through the state, bettrlng 
from your secretary some thougtits. 
some (juestlons, some request, to far- 
away frle-nds — for all Christian En- 
eleavorers are "friends ' in His name. 

Eighth. And last, is the spoke of 
fraternity. It has been my pleasure 
during the i>ast year, and one which 1 
esteem a great hone>r as well, to stand 
before various representative bodies as 
bearer of Christian Endeavor greet- 


How I love that word, with all It em- 
braces. It is the sum total of our in- 
ternational Scripture text, "One» is Your 
Master. Even Christ, and all ye are 
Brethren. " 

-Vnd so the wheel has been turning, 
each revolution bringing us nearer to- 
night and — Duluth. 

We also have a revenue officer aboard 
—Joseph Chapman, Jr.. of the Mill City. 
And what shrmld we have done without 
him? A terror he has been, to be* sure, 
to pirates on the» high .seas, for his war- 
cry is "no smuggling! ■ But his un- 
tiring, unremitting perseverance has 
saved our good old ship from financial 
wreck and ruin. The revenues have 
been zealously collected, and wisely 
and faithfully disbursed. His has not 
been a position of "elegant leisure" it 
has meant work — patient, conscientious 
persistent work. And it has been well 

And so we might enumerate at length 
the duties assigned each member of the 
crew — and not only assigned, but per 
formed. But time presses, and we have 
yet to inspect the cargo in the hold of 
the vessel. So come with me and wo 
will "go below," as sailors say, and see 
what manner of merchandise has come 
to us from "over seas." 

It seems dark when we first descend. 
so of course we see the largest objects 
first. Here are a number e>f immense 
be.>xes; and as we hold the torch of our 
curiosity a little higher and a little 
closer, we discover that they are lab- 
elled. The first bears a placard with 
the word "Presbyterian" printed in 
large letters upon it. Our revenue offi- 
cer is with us, so of course we may 
proceed to open the box and view the 
contents. We take them out, one by 
e>ne, 145 sfjcieties, duties paid. The sec- 
e»nd box is marked "Congregational." 
Tills contains 134 societies. Next, Bap- 
tist, with 51 sobleties. Fourth, Methodist 
Episcopal, numbering 46 societies. And 
so on until the boxes are all opened and 
"contents noted."

There they all are, ranged very prop- 
erly in their separate divisions. And 
now. since we are here for this very 
purpose, we mix them all up in a beau- 
tiful interdenominational heap. They 
were attractive before in their several 
denominational boxes. They are 

doubly .so now. In their mingled unity, 
just as the rainbow is more beautiful 
in its blended perfection than it could 
po.ssibly be with a "high wall of par- 
tition" between each brilliant hue. The 
"true blue" of Presbyterianism and the 
fire of Methodism, co-mingling with 
the gleaming white of Congregational- 
ism, the golden glow of the Baptist, 
and the iridescent cole)rs of all other 
denominations, unite to form ()Ur rain- 
bow of Christian Endeavor. It Is in- 
deeel a "bow of j)romise." whe»se arch, 
spanning the sky of time, and reflected 
in the ocean of eternity, becomes a 
perfect circle which shall endure "al- 
ways, even unto the end." The aggre- 
gate number of .setcieties in Minnesota 
is r>05, with an active membership of 
14.142; a.^soclate membership 4217, and an 
honorary membership of 1346; total, 19.- 

Hut we must pass on. Here Is an 
ene>rmous crate. What elocs it contain? 
Juniors! No use to box them up. From 
ea<h and every opening protrudes a 
curly head, a "shingled" head, a flaxen 
bead, a rod head, or a black head, as 
the case niiiy be. and chubby, dlmpb-d. 
sun-browne-d hands are extended In nil 
directions. And listen— they are sing- 

"Savior. like a sh'^pherd lead us. 
Much we need thy tendcrcst care; 

In thy pleasant pastures fooA us. 
For our use thy folds prepare; 
Blessed J'^sus. 
Thou hast be>ught us. thine we are." 

.\nd we bow our heads reverently, 
and say "Amen!" 

Threes hundrM and tw< nty-five junior 
sixMeties. with Ofii:; members, cem- 
stitute- a portion of the mf>st 
precious freight th*-- staunch old ship 
carries. Take them out of the crate, 
and send them out to help and to cheer 
those who are older, and wiser, and 
wearier than they: for, "a little child 
shall lead them." St. Anthony Park 
Congregational leads with 1.53 members: 
Faribault Presbyterian. l4o members: 
Red Wood Falls Presbyterian, 1S2. and 
Buffalo Congregational, 112. 

But here is a chest labelled "offerings 
for all puii>oses." It Is found to con- 
tain ?23,114.30, given by Minnesota En- 
deavorers the past y^-ar. Plymouth Con- 
gregational soc-lety, Minneapolis, has 
raised the largest amount, $797; Port- 
land avenue Church of Christ, Minne- 
apolis, $71;i.&l; Dayt >n averme Presby- 
terian. St. Paul, $6'i8.05. Beside this 
stands another. It is smaller than the 
first, and is marked "money for mis- 
sions." First Baptist, Minneapolis, leads 
with $434.97; Plymo-.ith Congregational. 
Minm^polis. $200; Portland avenue 
church f>f Christ. $12.5. Six thousand 
nine hundreil dollars have been glv«n to 
further tbe fulfillment of the command. 
"Preach the pospel to every creature." 

The minutes have lengthene-il into 
iiours while we have been taking in- 
ventory of our cargo, and now we will 
"go aloft" f>nce more. 

Ah. we are just in time! The life- 
boats are coming in! They are manned 
by our "lookout committees." with the 
pastor as stroke-oar. Sturdily and 
manfully they hend to the oars which 
rise an-i fall without break or pause. 
They reach the ship, and oyer the side 
are gently lifted the helpless drifting 
ones who were afloat on the pitiless 
sea. Surely to this life-.saving crew are 
the words "He whi'h converteth the 
sinner from the error of Ms way shall 
save a soul from death, and shall hide 
a multitude of sin? ' On»; thousand six 
hundred and twenty-one members have 
been brought into th. church through our 
Christian Endeavor .societies. Waverly

Fellow Endeavorers, I have de8crib<=d 
to you as well as I could, our ship and 
its cargo. Need I tell vou that the 
building of the ship and the lading, has 
been done by individual, personal work? 
Our ship carries no "cabin passengers." 
If rw' one comes aboard, "just 
for fun, ■ he soon discovers his mistake 
and gracefully drops himself overboard. 
To tbe effort" of each individual mem- 
ber of our state union is due the success 
of the vear. W'e have worked! 
We have worked hard! But have we 
done our best?

Another year is before us. We set 
sail tonight for the shores of '^e. Let 
us not "grow weary In well doing, for 
In due season we shall reap If we faint 
not." And some sweet day we shall 
stand upon the deck of our brave old 
ship and, a.s we n»^r the shores of the 
Home- land, we shall clasp hands and

We are safe within the vale-." 


President Charles N. Hunt, of Minne- 
apolis, read his annual addi-ess, as fol- 

The great need of the world is Christ, 
not orthodoxy! Wesley once said: 
"You may be as orthodox' as the devjl 
and quite as wicked." The worlds need 
Is Christ exemplified— Christ every- 
where! This is Christian Endeavor. 
Christianity Is not a belief In a book, 
dogma or creed; it is a life; a dally, 
hourly doing In the spirit of Christ. "If 
any man have not the spirit of Christ he 
Is none of His." Gladstone says: "Talk 
about the questions of the day, there is 
but one question, and that is the gos- 
pel. It can and will correct everything 
needing correction. All men at the head 
of great movements are Christian men. 
During the many years I was in the 
cabinet I was brought Into association 
with sixty mastf-r mimis and all but five 
of them were Christian. My only hope 
for the world is in 'oringing the human 
mind in contact with divine revelation." 
The world needs a living Christ In you 
and you and me. Charles Sumner said: 
"If you save Ametica you must sanctify 
it as well as fortify it." He was right! 
Here is the light of the world, the salt 
of the earth, the leaven of the land In the 
millions of sunny faced soldiers enlisted 
under the white banner of the King 
Christ! saying not with lip only, but 
with dally life: "Trusting in the Lord 
Jesus Christ for strength. I promise Him 
—Him that I will strive to do whatever 
He would like to have me do. That I 
will pray and read my Bible every day." 
Disband your armies I beat your swords 
into i>runlng hooks and plough shares! 
tear down your fortiflcation-s, O .\merlca! 
for a greater bulwark is yous!! Sanctifl- 
caiion is better than fortification. A 
great general, when asked where his 
breastworks were pointed to his sol- 
diers drawn up In line and replied: 
"There, and every one of them is a 
brick." America, nay the world may 
point to the young Christians found in 
Christian Endeavor, Epworth league and 
B. Y. P. V. societies and say, with like 
pride, every one of them is a "lively 
stone" built upon the only foundation. 
Christ Jesus. .Some petty, pessimistic, 
pitiable doubters have looked at this 
great movement "for Christ and the 
Church" and said: Enthusiasm, youth, 
froth! It won't last. This suggests a 
story. Two English workingmen saw 
fe>r the first time a locomotive. John 
said: "Bill, they .say that thing goes." 
Bill replied: "Don't you believe it, 
John?" "That thing will never go. " 
Just then the engineer opened the 
throttle and the engine sped along the 
track. Bill looked at the swiftly depart- 
ing engine and then at John, with open 
eyes and mouth, and shouted: "John, 
that thing will never stop." When the 
locomotive returned. Bill climbed up into 
the cab and examined it, and then said: 
"John. I will tell you what makes it go. 
it's the fire inside of it." Those who 
cried out a few years ago that Christian 
Endeavor would not go along the rails 
of evangelization of the world. Inter- 
denomlnationalism. missionary extension 
and Christian citizenship are now say- 
ing: "It will never stop." 2.500.000 En- 
deavorers In the world, 202.000 won to 
Christ last year by Endeavorers! $425,000 
given to missions last year, an increase 
of 500.000 in the world this past year! 
But let us remember that it is the flre 
inside that makes it go — the flre of the 
holy spirit. The locomotive is cold and 
useless, the engineer powerless, the coal, 
hard and black, a plaything for a child, 
but when the fire is added, then comes 
power. "Without Me ye can do noth- 
ing." says Christ. "It is not by power 
nor by might, but by My spirit, .saith the 
Lord." Our growth numerically Is only 
a snare, if wc depend upon that! Dr. 
Olark said in hfs annual address this 
year: "Christian Is to stand imtll a 
Tammany in America is forevermore an 
impo.«slhllity: until a missionary board 
debt is forevermore an Impo.ssiblllty." 
He urged, and I may be }>ermltte>fl to fol- 
low the words of .so worthy a follower of 
Jesus Christ: 

Loyalty to Christ! 

Loyalty to the Bible, and a more earnest 
study of it. 

Loyalty to e)ur denominations. 

T..oyalty to the principles of Christian 
Endeavor: viz., the pledge and commit- 
tees, the prayer meeting and consecra- 
tion services! 

And la.stly, loyalty to adv)ince En- 
deavor along the lines of soul-winning. 
Christian citizenship, missionary exten- 
sion and Christian fellowship. 

Minnesota Endeavor Is not to be be- 
hind in any of these great movements. 
With her 30,000 Endeavorers she is to 
have her Parkhursts. her Roo.sevelts. her 
Mood>-8 and Clarks, her civic right- 
eousness, her Christian governors, 
statesmen and mayors, men who will live 
above party power and selfish Interest. 
Men who not only can but do enforce the 
laws! Men who not only say but live. 
"Righteousness exalteth a nation, but 
sin Is a reproach to any people." Mlnne» 
sota is to see the day when "one man 
shall chase a themsand and two shall put 
ten thousands to flight" It will come as 
silently but as surely as the sun burst 
came this beautiful October morning. It 
will come when selfishness Ls unseated 
an<l Christ is enthroneel in the individual 
life of the youth of Minnesota, when it 
shall be said of each of us, as was said 
of our master. "He saved others." 

This day and hour is too big with priv- 
ilege and opportunity to spend it in any 
either way than by lifting up before you 
"Jesus Christ and Him crucified." With 
you I desire to place my whole being in 
His service this new year as never before 
that we may the better rid ourselves of 
ourselves. lo«>k with me for the remain- 
ing minutes of my time on the cruci- 
fixion scene. Math. 27-42, "He saved 

First, the personality of Christ— "He." 

Second, the purpose of Christ— 

Third, the persistent plan of Christ-

May I dfcflnu Christianity as a living,

Christ. The j.-cring. curbing mob that 
pressed th« crown of thomi- upon His 
brow and nailed Him to the cross spoke 
the truth, though in mockery! He saved 
others, 'He was wounded for our trans- 
gressions He was bruised for our in- 
iquities, the chastisement of our peace 
was upon Him. and by His stripes we 
are healed ' 'And I if I be lifted up 
from the earth will draw all men unto 
mc. ■ O. brother, sister, lift up the per- 
sonal Christ daily, hourly in lip. look and 
life, "for there is none other name imder 
heaven given among men whereby we 
must he saved." "Look unto me and be 
ye saved all ye ends of the earth, for I 
am God and there is none else." Say 
with Paul: "I live, and yet not I, but 
Christ liveth in me.' 

But you say my reputation I Reputa- 
tion He had none! What reputation 

could a man have in whose face tb*y 
spit, whose garment waa a mock robe, a 
kln« whose crown was rtot diamonds but 
thorns! Heir of all heaven, who, when 
asked about his earthly home, said: 
"Foxes have holes, and birds of the air 
have nests, but the Son of Man hath not 
where to lay his head." Who. when He 
was reviled, reviled not again." "Who 
Is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, 
and as a sheep before her shearers is 
dumb, so He openeth not His mouth." 
"For you know the grace of our Lord 
Jesus Christ, how for your sakes He be- 
came poor, that ye through His poverty 
might be rich." He gave up heaven. 
He took upon Him the form of man. 
He became obedient unto death, even the 
death upon the cross. "For though he 
was a son. yet learned He rjbedlence by 
the things which He suffered." For 
what? Himself! ease! comfort! hopes! 
home! ambition! reputation! No! No. 
No!! for others!! "He is a Christ for all 
the times, and all the climes." The per- 
sonal character of Christ alone saves. 
Pause, army of Endeavor! Have we his 
personality? Without that, save we can 
not. The new name is daily being writ- 
ten in your forehead and mine. The 
Christ character, or lack of It. is daily 
being stampetl on your life and mine, 
and whether we will or no. he who runs 
not only may but does read. 
"We are living, we are living. In a grand 

and awful time. 
In an age on others telling, to be living 
is sublime." 

But to many of us only sublime selfish- 
ness, frivolity, utter indifference to a 
brother or a sister's needs. Ringing 
down the centuries comes the ,oft re- 
peated cr5': "Am I my brother's 
keeper?" It has only one answer now 
as then. Yes, your brother's, sister's 
savior first and keeper ever after«-ards. 
He gave His life a ransom for many — all. 
We\ in sharp contrast, spend our days as 
a tale that Is told, on our little selves, 
and those who love our little selves. 
Have you ever examined critically the 
selfishness of your prayers, plans and 

"Lord bless me and my wife, 
My son John and his wife. 
Us four. 
No more — Amen!" 

We don't say it in so many words, but 
actions speak louder than words. A child 
actions speak louder than words.A child 
at Sunday school was asked: "Do you 
pray?" Replying "yes," the teacher 
said "for whom?" "Self," came the 
quick reply, which went unrebuked by 
the teacher. We are self-centered. We 
should be Christ-centered! 

Let the white search light of God's 
truth In on your life tonight! 

Yes, He saved others. We talk about 
it. Means and methods of doing it con- 
sume our time, and we forget that men 
are i^erlshlng meanwhile. I look into my 
own life, only to find that every act 
centers in self. My next door neighbor 
might say as David did: "No man cares 
for my soul." but only for my pocket- 
book. He saved others, that was His 
one purpose. His chief aim. He did it in 
many ways, but He did it! His enemies 
remarked it! What would our enemies 
say of us? I anticipate your reply: "It 
is all I can do to save myself!" As a 
Christian man recently said: "Judging 
by the way men act out West, the golden 
rule should be read trus: You 'do' the 
other fellow, or he will *do' you." But 
listen to Christ: "For whosoever will 
save his life shall lose it; but whosoever 
will lose his life for my sake, the same- 
shall save it." Those of us who are not 
self-centered try to be double-centered. 
We need to hear again the words of the 
Master: "Ye can not serve God and 
manunon." What a sad plight is the 
voter in who is trying to revolve around 
both political and religious centers — wide 
apart— Sunday he prayed, "thy kingdom 
come." Monday he voted the devil's 
kingdom stay. When he prayed? he did 
not pray; but when he voted he did pray! 
Conduct, not creed, my fellow Endea- 
vorers, and yet all Christlike conduct 
grows out of Christ as creed! 

The Christian Endeavor society is not 
and will not become a political party, 
but as individuals we must lift up Christ 
in politics! "He is able to save to the 
uttermost!" That means ward politics 
today! Much of political life today is 
only shrewd scheming for selfish ends! 
Christian Endeavt>r Is not only pleach- 
ing and teaching, but also living Chris- 
tian citizenship! The best Christian will 
be the best citizen. He who is most 
loyal to God's law will be most obedient 
to man's. "Zacchaeus was chief 
among the publicans, and he was inch." 
Christ ate with him and won him. saved 
him! We are different. We eat with 
publicans and sinners too — but they win 
us! Christ came not to do away with 
the law, but to fulfill it. Parkhurst and 
Roosevelt have {iroved that the best way 
to do away with a bad law is to fulfill 
it— in other words, enforce it! 
"God give us men, a time like this de- 
Clear minds, pure hearts, true faith and 

ready hands. 
Men who possess opinions and a will." 
Men whf>m desire for office d<">es not kill. 
Men who have honor, men who will not 

Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above 
the fog In public life and in private 

Such are Christian Endeavorers. Put 

your ear to the ground, doubting one. 

and you will hear the tramp of millions! 



He did not pose before thorn. We 
can't save men by exhibiting before them 
the forms that once contained Chris- 
tianity. Animals (dumb) crack the nut 
to get the kernel, but men, ranked as 
"deacons, " "bishops." "revs.," D.D.. 
LL.D., and others of no title exhibit to 
the world the shell when there is no ker- 
nel inside, and wonder why men— think- 
ing men^-don't "Join the church." 
What's wrong? Self — the denomina- 
tion exalted instead of Christ. Yet done 
in the name of the k)wly Nazarene; 
"who came not to be ministered unto, 
but to minister." Again, we need to 
hear the words of the Christ: "He that 
exalteth himself shall be abased; but he 
that humbleth himself shall be exalted." 
In brief, the Christ way of getting up Is 
to get dowq! This is a practical age. 
The Christ in you is not only the hope of 
glory, but the .savior of your brother, 
frie-nd! The man who is not a Christian 
six week days can't be a Christian Sun- 

If you would bo a redeemer Sunday, 
von must be one everv day! 

"Look not every man on his own 
things" — "with brotherly love, in honor 
preferring one another" Christ saved 
others! We cheat them! I know it 
sounds harsh, but the truth must be 
told' The surgeon's knife is seldom 
pleasant, but necessary! I should be as 
anxious about m.y neighbors temporal 
and spiritual welfare as about my own! 
My neighbors wc-akness. not my strength 
should be my guide in my pleasures and 
amusements. Not can I, but can my 
weaker brother, sister do such and sin 
not. Better yet, what would Christ do 
under like circumstances! Paul says: 
"If eating meat cause my brother to 
offend, r "Will eat no meat while the world 
standeth. ' I alwaj-s pity a Christian 
who asks: "Can I drink wine in my 
friend's house? Can I dance, play cards 
or attend the theater?" You can when 
there is no better thing to do! You can 
when that act will be a stepping stone to 
heaven and not a stumbling block to 
eternal ruin for that w^ake^ brother or 
sister for whom Christ died, and for 
whom you do now live!! 

"Even Christ pleased not Himself." 
"He came not to do His owti will, but 
the will of Him tlMt sent Him." He 
saved others: "We don't, and tbe reason 

why we do not ti often In onr so-called 
harmless (?) amusements! Listen acain: 
"Come out from amonc them* and be y^ 
sefMirate, saith the Lord, and touch not 
the vnclean thing, and I will receive you. 
and will be a Father unto you. and ye 
shall be My sons and My daufhters, 
saith the Lord God Almlffhty. ' One of 
the new problems confronting us is Sun- 
day bicycling! Christians can not and 
will not ride their wheels for pleasure or 
business (other than the Lord's) on the 
Sabbath! All Sunday traveling or dese- 
cration comes under this head. A great 
New York paper recently said: "The 
Christian Endeavor as.soclation will soon 
lead all Christian organizations in it.s 
iitand against Sabbath desecration and 
the liquor traffic. ' May these be the 
ringing words of a true prophet! But if 
we are to fulfill this prophecy it must Ix? 
not only In resolutions passed in con- 
ventions, but in the firm .stand of the 
individual life! 

It is easy to resolve for others, but 
hanl to do yourself the thing resolved: 
but the doing not the resolving counts! 

Savonarolla said e>f the reformers of 
his day: "We are so busy praying that 
we have not time to hear God talk." Let 
us. Endeavorers. hear God tails. "Honor 
the Sabbath day to keep it holy." Let it 
not be said of us as a captain .said when 
called upon to toast the militia: "Heres 
to the militia. Invincible in peace; in- 
visible in war." 


Christ says today as He did when He 
walked the shores of Gallllee — by saving 
others. This is a day of "isms," but 
"otherism" is still neglected. As Chris- 
tians, we spend far more for banquets, 
tobacco, ribbons, feathers and diamonds 
than we do on the heathen! Spurgeon 
well .said, the question isn't: "Ought we 
to save the heathen so much as can we 
be saved if \\-e don't save the heathen." 
O. you say, but it's a little thing that I 
neglect the heathen, and that the little 
child next door is without Christ. There 
are no little things, no limited acts. The 
significance as well as the pathos of 
eternity is wrapped up in our smallest 
Joys and sorrows. "The greatness of 
the incarnate God is in His humblest 
child." ."'He saved others." Hear again 
the Christ: ""Inasmuch as ye did it unto 
one of the least of these My brethren, ye 
did it unto Me." Let us treat the whole 
round world as Christ's! Using it. not 
abusing it. Vae It sometimes roughly, if 
you must, as a football, kicking it. but 
always toward the goal. Jesus Christ is 
the savior of this world! Never forget 
that. He has saved you and me to be 
saviors of others. Put that in too! 
Christ saved Andrew and Andrew saved 
Peter, and Peter saved 3000 one day and

Sunday morning devotional exercises 
were held at the High School from 8:.30 
to 10 o'clock, at which time the dele- 
gates separated to go to the various 
services in different churches. 

At 2 p. m. the afternoon meeting at 
the High School begran with a praise 
and prayer service led by A. G. Strong, 
of Duluth. Mrs. C. C. Tobey, of Sauk 
Center, then read an interesting paper 
on ""Missions," as follows: 

Our outlook depends upon our point of 
obser\ation. I stand today upon the 
threshold of a beautiful home--Christ'8 
church— the Christians home on earth. 
Within this home everj'thinsr is fair and 
bright, the furnishings are costiv and 
elegant, the members are clad in rai- 
ment soft and fine. Everything Rlittent 
with dazzling splendor. 1 see no pinched 
faces, no shivering forms. There Is noth- 
ing lacking for comfort or pleasure. I 
took out into God's beautiful world, 
around and about this home, and I ^eo 
stretching far a^ the eye can reach a 
vast field of growing grain. On the 
nearer edges I «pe Home grain cut. A fe-w 
she-aves lay ready bound, some are gath- 
ered Into shocks. I Bee. even a few 
stacks all ready for the threithlnK- Farth- 
er out 1 can see places where work has 
been done and in still being carried on, 
for here and there I can sc^ lonely ln- 
borers who-sc^m almo«^t to give up, so 
vast is the field and so few the reapers. 
They pause to wipe from burdened brow 
the drops of toii and to sharpeti the 
dulled eilgee of th* sickles. I see them 
stJTiin their ey** toward this beautiful 
home, anxiously hoping and loncinR for 
others to ••ome into the field, either as 
those to wield the sickle or as those who 
'bear suppMi* and refreehnwnt. Thev 
kr>ow the Master has told the need, they 
know he is all the while sayins: "Why- 
stand ye here idle, go ye also into m.v 
vineyard and whatsoever i«> riKht I will 
pive the-e." And the.<so laborers, as thev 
have come into the home after the days 
toil, have lifted up their voices in pl«>ad- 
ing for help and helpers. Some have heett 
touched, and have started out. but as the 
burninR sun of noon has beat upon th»»m 
they have fled a^ain to the cool shadows 
of the l>eautlfur home. Occasionally a 
faithful one has l>een added to the num- 
t>er of workers, and they have rejoiced 
and taken courage. They have gone out 
again in the early morn saying: "How 
long, oh. Master, how long?" As I gaxe> 
upon the scene I wonder if this bountiful 
harvest is goinp to waste for lack of 
reapers. But, hark! I hear now th.' 
Ixvrd of the harvest talking earnestly 
with the younger members of this home. 
I hear him say: "Simon, son of Jonar, 
lovest thou me?" 1 hear the reply low 
and sweet. ""Yea, deart^st Lord, thou 
knowest we love thee-" The Master savs: 
"Then thou wilt do my work?" '"Yes, 
Majiter," they reply. '"Look about thi.s 
home which thou hast placed us in. Is it 
not beautifully kept? la it not .swept 
and garnished? Our hands and feet are 
busy fUH we go to and fro." I hear the 
loving tender Xiaster say: "Yes. dear 
children, I see it all. The carpet* soft 
and beautiful are free from dust and 
soil. The costly easy chairs and couch^'S 
are covered w^ith rich drapings of won- 
derful make. The tables are covereil 
with daintv doilies that represent achinc 
eyes and hesvi, and days of patient toll. 
Inside the home is perfect. But 'tis not 
enough. Oh, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest 
thou me. more than th*> ease, and beauty, 
and pleasure with which I have sur- 
rounded thee? L.ovcst thou me enouirh 
to leave .some of this pleasant easy work 
and with sickk- in hand go out Into my 
girat field that Is in stich need of work- 
ers and foil in the burning sun 'till the 
evenirvr shades fall?" I rJoiw my eytss 
and listen. The answer is not long in 
conjing. for these dear children hav«* 
IiIedKed fhem.<w>lves to do "whatever H*? 
would like tf> have them do." I hear a 
faint murmur of sound, then a hum and 
buzz. I open my eyes and turn about. 
The younger onee are all astir. Thev are 
divesting themselves' of the dainty rai- 
ment, and buckling on the armor neces- 
sary for more active service. Their 
sickles boar upon the- shining b!ad«s the 
mystical letttrs C. E. Their fett art be- 
in*; shod with the preparation of peace. 
Their f.aces ar« aglow with zeal and en- 
thusiaj>ni. The answer ccmcs again ur.t 
now with deeper, fuller nseauing. "Dcar- 
t^st Lord, thou snowiest all things and 
thou knowest that we do lo\e thee. Show 
us the way. a> ^ill walk therein." And 
these .strong impetuotis Peter*« are going 
forth to the work, trusting His promise 
for strength, and clasping to th*ir hearts 
the: ""IjO. I am with you alwaj-s." I 
hear great shouts of rejoicing from the 
laborers out in the field, and yes. I hear 
erhoa from the heavens above as the 
angels rejoice. O the promise Is great 
now for a speedy harvest. Those who 
have tolled so long alone have renewed 
their strength. What rare they for ach- 
InK head and limbs. Thev love the work 
and feel assured that before thev fall 
others will bo there to take their places. 
To me the eocouragetnents are greater 
than the dlsc<Mu«ceaeats in tbu out- 
look. But,^ dear .Cbristian Endeavorers. 
do we see tVls vast voric to our home

the C K. six-iety has done. We have a 
risht to rejoice over it. but let us con- 
stantlv ui-jje and cheer each other on to 
more "work until there Is a contrilwition 
for missions from every member. Some- 
thing laid bv in store on the llrst day of 
the wt-ek. We want to study how to 
Kive and we want to give systematically. 
Are many of u* giving one-tenth'^ Are 
any of us giving until we feel U? When 
he conK-s to i\K-kon with us are we goin>,' 
to be able to give the Lord's own back 
to Him with interest? Do you say you 
don't know what is right to do? Are 
vou stumbling over the -whatever of 
vour pledge? Tliere is no mistaking its 
meaning. He wants us to do His will. 
His will was to do the will of the Father 
that sent Him. The Father's will Is that 
none should _i>erish. but all come into 
eternal life. There are some things that 
we might question whether Christ would 
have us do or not. but there Is no ques- 
tion about bringing souls to a knowledge 
of God. So what we Invest in missionary 
work, of time, or talent, or money, is 
safe, and we shall double on our invest- 
ment. God wants all the grain garnered, 
not alone the wheat, but the barley, rye 
and oiits, that' growing near, and that 
growing afar. If there is a professing 
Christian here today who does not be- 
lieve in missions, that one does not be- 
lieve fullv in Christ and needs more 
praving for than the heathen, and it does 
not" help matters to say you l>elieve In 
home but not in foreign missions. There 
are no barbed wire fences in God's tield. 
No not even a dead furrow to mark 
where one part loaves oft" and another 
begins. It is all alike precious to Him, 
and will all be gathered at last Into one 
granarv. The reaper who does not be- 
lieve in his work does not bind up many 
sheaves. "If a man has not the spirit 
of Christ he is none of His." And Christ 
was God on a mission to save souls. W© 
must have the same spirit then we are 
like Chirst. Saviours of men. God has 
put into our hands a sickle sharp and 
V)owerful. It i« not for ornament. Only 
iis we use it will it remain bright* and 
shining. If we dull It in using we can 
sharpen it on God's promises. If it rusts 
from non-use what can we do with it, 
what is It good for? The arm that uses 
it diligently and vigorously will develop 
muscle and strength for more and heavier 
work. Our churches that are doing most 
for missions are the ones that look fair- 
est and brightest to the eyes of our 
Master. The lives consecrated fully to 
His work have before them the path that 
shineth brighter and brighter unto the 
perfect da.v. God, who is rich in merxjy 
and love, hath raised us up and made us 
to sit together in heavenly place*. To 
Those He hath given much, of them does 
he require much. We must feel an in- 
dividual responsibility and obligation In 
mission work. Those who have gone out 
as workers are ours, f.or the worK Is no 
more theirs than ours. "VTe must support 
them with money and with prayers. The 
more we give the more we want to give, 
the more we want to give the more we 
can give. The more we know of the 
work the more we want to know, and the 
more we love it and are interested in It. 
We love our own, this work Is our own. 
If It fails the shame is ours. Feed the 
hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick, 
set free the captive. Let us bear always 
in mind this thou«-ht. I belong to Christ. 
Let it envelope like a cloud, and cover 
like a garment all we do and say. Then 
the fountain pure, the stream will be 
pure. May there flow out from this great 
fountain of Christian Endeavor a stream 
that shall irrigate the waste places of 
our dpar home land making them to blos- 
som like a garden and may it flow on to 
ihe sea and mix with the waters that 
shall I>ear on its bosom the story and 
the knowledge of Christ to the uttermost 
parts of the earth. 

Then Professor Pearson, of North- 
field, spoke upon "Systematic Work in 
Foreign Missions." In substance he 

"I am asked to dispose of this whole 
subject, in fifteen minutes," he said, 
"so here goes. The most systematic 
thing I know of is to take up a collec- 
tion, which we might do right here 
while you are in good humor and good 
heart. The next best thing is to take 
a young man, strong of body and clear 
of mind, with a sound collegiate train- 
ing. Then take a young woman with 
the same endowments and the same 
training. Then make these two halves 
of one whole and let them go to Africa, 
India, China or Japan and start a Chris- 
tian home and live there in the midst 
of the blackness of heathendom. I 
know of several couples who have dona 
this and they are now well known and 
successful in the countries in which they 

"The next best thing. If they don't 
go as two halves of a whole, let them 
go as companions, two young women 
together, as many have gone. I won't 
speak of young men going alone, for It 
is their fault if they cannot find a bet- 
ter half. 

"The first step in the home training is 
to take Matt, xxii, 19-20, put it on a large 
card, hang it up in the meeting room, 
aiKl pray that the Lord may teach you 
all that it means. Do this once a month 
and you will find a flame of fire leaping 
up in your hearts the like of which you 
never felt before. 

"The second step is to convert your 
pastor to foreign missions. Make it so 
hot that he cannot help taking fire. The 
saddest thing I have seen is the number 
of pastors not interested in foreign mis- 
sions. Ask your pastor to join with you 
and make yoiu-s a missionary church 
from center to circumference. 

"The pastor should appoint a mission- 
ary committee in the church, revive the 
monthly missionary concerts, take a col- 
lecth^n for missions at least once a year, 
and preach upon the subject at least once 
a month. 

"There is no need for offering a motive 
for all this work. Bear in mind where 
we are. located at the head of the great 
lake system of America. From here 
radiate the commercial systems of the 
country connecting with ocean lines 
going to the homes of heathendom. Min- 
nes4ita. with the abundance God has 
placed in her soil, should be at the 
head. Go<l has given us ways and 
means to the end that we may train you 
to become messengers of the cross, going 
to the ends of the earth and saving souls 
for His everlasting kingdom. 

Re\-. C. H. Patton then read an address 
upon "The New Benevolence," as fol- 
lows ; 

We need to reconstruct our manner of 
giving. We are living in a time when 
old methods are being outclassed rapidly 
in all departments of life. Business is conducted very differently today 
from the way It was twenty years ago, 
and Ihe men who have not found this 
out are being left in the rear. The Puri- 
tan, the PilgriTn and the Volunteer, cham- 
pion yachts of a few years ago are no 
longer available as upholders of the na- 
tional honor upon the seas. The Vigi- 
lant could defeat Valkyrie II but not Val- 
kyrie III. 

The church has been advancing rapidly 
•luring these last few years. We see a 
new spirit in ecclesiastical circles, new 
lines of work are being carried on, new 
subjects are being discussed in our as- 
sociations and conferences, new sciences 
are bHng taught in our theological semi- 
naries, and new types of churches are 
being built. We have been living through 
some wonderfully sngniticant and fruit- 
ful years of late in the history of Chris- 

One sphere, however, seems as yet not 
to have been invaded by this quickening 
process. Everything is new in our 

churches except benevolance. In the Im- 
portant sphere of giving we are plodding 
along at the old pace of tlfty years ago. 
InJlvlduals and churches have settled 
down upon too slow a pace when It oome^ 
to nushlng the contribution box. The 
trouWe is not that we are not systematic 
in our benevolence. W* are systematic 
eiiou*;!!, but the trouble Is we systemati- 
cally give too little. The average church 
member Is much like the good woman 
who was very Indignant wlien I urged 
upon her the claims of systematic giv- 
ing. "Systematic giving".'" she ex- 
claimed, "why. I have always given sys- 
tematically. 1 put 25 cents into the plate 
at every collection." Re<luce the sum to 
10 cents and we have the plan of giving 
whidj generally prevails. .\ man hears 
a stirring appeal for the distribution of 
Bibles in his own city, and gives lo 
cents. The ladles approach him to help 
buy a new carpet for the vestibule at 
the side door where the choir enter, and 
he smiles and gives 10 cents. A mission- 
arv is telling of the opportunities In In- 
dia, of whole villages turning to t^hris- 
tianirv, of the sacritlce of the workers, 
and the tremendous call for help. This 
man sits in his pew all aglow, his face 
i>eams with enthusiasm, he is stirred to 
the depths of his being, and gives 10 
cents. Next Sunday it is the story of 
home missioiKS or the church del>t, or 
the music fund, but always 10 cents. 
Nevertheless I believe In systematic be- 
nevolence. But may the Lord deliver us 
from thl« kind. 

Let me suggest a few of the features 
of the new benevolence which we all be- 
lieve is soon to appear. 

1. Benevolence will be exalted as the 
chief work of the church. When the new 
inteiest in the Bible has had a little long- 
er time in which to work, or perhaps be- 
fore, when ministers begin to preacii 
more upon the sul>ji>ct the people will dis- 
cover that Jesus gave some very detlnite 
instructions as to the spreading of his 
cause througlKMit the earth, emphasiz- 
ing them with all the solmenlty of the laS* 
moment spent with hij» followers. Also 
that Jesus had a good deal to say upon 
the subject of money, that hardly a page 
of the gospels can be turned that does 
not contain some reference to the tise or 
the misuse of wealth. By and by men 
are going to put these two things to- 
gether in practical ways. At pjvsent 
both are held by all orthodox Christians 
but each rather va«:uely, and with little 
or no reference to the other. 

Tlie new benevolence will hold that the 
command which Christ took pains to 
give last must be first In Importance; 
therefore that, the chief work of the 
church is evangelizing the world. As for 
the means of carrying this out It will be 
seen very clearly that It must be done 
either by people giving up the pursuit of 
money, and several olher correspondent 
things. In the determination to devote 
their whole time to the work of Christ; 
or, if this is not possible, by giving 
money to thla same work as of supreme 
importance. In either c««e money Is In- 
volved, the question being shall we give 
it or give It up. The new benevolence is 
going to insist that Christians take one 
of tliose two attitudes. 

It will not take very many Christians 
who think and act In that way to usher 
in the new era when our benevolent so- 
cieties shall have no debts and when the 
work of Christ can be pushed right and 
left with tremendous activity. Every- 
body says we are tired of these debts, 
one societv after another ininnlng be- 
hind and "just now all together. This 
simply means that we are tired of our- 
selves, of our old haphazard unsyste- 
matic way of supportmg the princip^a 
work of the church- It means that the 
new spirit which is abroad in the church 
today and which «hows itself in such 
quickening of local work will soon enter 
the larger and more important field of 
national and world evangelization. When 
this tired feeling becomes general, that 
is when all our churches become weary 
of giving so stingily to the lord's work, 
then the new benevolence will be here In 
its fullness and power. 

And no churches will gain more from 
the new benevolence than the small fron- 
tier ones. It may not bring them more 
help from the Home Missionary society. 
On the contrary it may bring them less. 
But there will be a distinct gain in the 
enlargement of their field. The most 
trj-lng feature of a small church Is its 
smallness. The people say: "We are in 
a small town, we can only pay a small 
salary, and we have to divide the field 
with several others. So what's the use." 
Those who take a more encouraging view 
of the situation look to the building of 
a sawmill, or the locating of railroad 
shops to improve the outlook. A better 
and far surer way Is to annex the world 
through benevolence. The Lord says to 
all his churches and especially to those 
struggling in small places: "The field Is 
the world." Why should we not enter 
into the inspiration of this fact, and con- 
sider that when we by our gifts assist 
the labors of home and foreign mission- 
aries we are entitled to claim their work 
as our own. and to be as proud of it as 
any conquest we may make on the local 
field. There Is nothing fanciful In this 
thought. Not a few of our churches 
have already gotten hold of the idea. and. 
being limited in their home opportuni- 
ties, are buoyed up by the thought of the 
larger work tHey are accomplishing 
through their benevolenctte. To them 
the reports of the progress of Christ's 
Kingdom which come from mission fields 
at home and far away are the choicest 
of possessions. There is a little church 
among the pines of Minnesota which can 
tell a story here. Under the statistical 
forms of the new benevolence they will 
be descril>ed as follows: Membership, 
24: salary, $100; field, apparently West 
Dora, but really the world. Result, great 
spiritual life in that church and all sorts 
of eftorts going on for the evangelization 
of the region immediately around the lit- 
tle $600 building. 

2. Under the new benevolence more at- 
tention will be paid to the machinery of 
giving. As soon as the churches realize 
that they can do their greatesit work 
through their gifts they will set them- 
selves at the task of devising ways and 
means for the raising of money for the 
Lord. About this time they will find 
new interest in that well worn and at 
present juiceless subject, "Systematic 
Benevolence." Some old tracts on the 
subject, which the minister had em- 
balmed In one of his cup-hoards, will be 
in demand for a prayer meeting. New 
material will be obtained for a sermon, 
and setting a stimulating example him- 
self, the pastor will discover some day 
several »chool teachers, a dressmaker, a 
poor farmer's wife, and one of the trus- 
tees have stood with the old patriarch 
Jacob and pledged a definite proportion 
of their incomes to the Lord. The thing 
will spread, and some Thursday night, 
when they are talking on the subject, he 
may have the pleasure of hearing one 
of "his young men remark (as was actu- 
ally the case in a certain church: "This 
systematic giving is glorious fun, but it 
does take lots of money." 

"Yes, it does take more money than 
the old way. That Is the objection to It 
In most people's eyes, and that Is whaC 
chiefly commends it to those who be- 
lieve In the new benevolence. But the 
young man was right. It is the most 
joyous a<s well as the most liberal way to 

The crowning joy, however, will come 
to this pastor when the 10-cent man, of 
whom I speak, is converted, and changes 
from a 10-cent Ijasis to a 10 per cent 
ba.sis. If I have rightly estimated that 
man's income the next collection in his 
church will be about $50 greater than any 

The fullness of success might now be 
considered to have \teon reached. If so 
many give systematically with reference 
to their Incomes and with reference to 
the imr>ortance of the various objects, 
there may .seem to be little need of spe- 
cial appeals and work In connection with 
collections. BuC not so. To be sure 
these dear people I have mentioned, the 
school teachers, the dressmaker, the 
I)oor farmer's wife, the trustee, the en- 
thusiastic, young man. and the convertetl 
10-center. Isralltes indeed, will furnish 
a good solid basis for every collection 
the year round. But there will always 
be a considterable bod.v of delightfully 
liberal and crotchety persons who do not 
take to the mathematical way. They 
will call It fussy and smacking of O. T. 
legalism. When they hear of a good 
thing they will give to It according to 
their ability, but they do not want to be 
bound lay any rules. It behooves the 
I>astor. accordingly, to work these people 
for all he Is worth and for all they are 
worth. He should see to It that they 
hear of a good many good things before 
the year rolls round, and he should get 
them accustomed to hearing of certain 
excellent ol)jects in a certain rotation, 
home missions, for instance bobbing up 
every May. In this way he will lead theirt 
Into a soti; of system of liberality without 
their knowing It. The main thing, of 
course, is to assure our benevolent so- 
cieties of a decent and reliable mipport. 
to enable them to reckon with reasonable 
awnirance upon a certain amount from 
each church. That is the obvious purpo»e 
of the new benevolence, and any method 
which conduces to this end will be val- 
uable in the local church. 

Brethren, if these societies belong to 
us, or rather if they belong to Christ, 

do let us b© decent to them. Our present 
method." or lack of method. Is simply 
outrageous. The very least we can do 
under a system of benevolence old or 
new is to appoint an offering In our 
churches for all these societies, and then 
to stimulate our p«ople In the offering 
bv all the means and all the skill at our 
command. But as It Is now a vast num- 
ber of churches do not even make the at- 
tempt. , . ,. , 

I confess I cannot understand why 
ministers are so afraid In this matter. 1 
atn fully aware the church committee is 
going to object to any more money be- 
ing asked of the people "Just at this 
time." tThat Is the usual phrase). But 
why sliould a young man who has played 
In a football team and hud a theological 
education be afraid of two or three timid 
deacons? Take up your collections, my 
brother. If you have to pass the plate 
yourself. Do not let your church suffer 
the disgrace of gjvfhff nothing to the 
larger work of Christ. 

;5. Tile new benevolence will be a part 
of church fellowship. We ought not to 
encourage peojile ,tlo unite with our 
churches imtll they see somethlUK- of the 
larger meaning of Christianfiy antl their 
own relation lo it. No one should be al- 
lowed to join the church if that is all he 
means to join. Our forefathers settled 
it that church membership means .some- 
thing more than a right to partake of 
the sacraments and to enjoy other ec- 
clesiastical privileges. t)ur fathers seti- 
tle*l It that church membership means 
somethirig more than regeneration and 
siinctirtcation. They added the important 
iton* of personal work. It ivmalns for 
us to add that church membership means 
al.'K) missions. When a young person 
deislres In these days to become a member 
of Christ's church if it is the prompting 
of I'hrist in his heart which leads him 
to the step he will be able to express not 
onlv the sense of the forgiveness of his 
sins, his determination to follow Christ 
in personal character, and his willing- 
ness to enter into some form of Christian 
activity, but also that he believes In the 
universal destiny of our religion, and Is 
willing to join with 'Christ through the 
jigencies of tJhe church in evangelizing 
the world. Let the examining commit- 
tees see to it that questioius are askeil 
on that point when people seek admission 
to the church. 

So also in the s^ihere of denominational 
fellowship should it not be expected that 
every church seeking alliance with any 
denomination will be desirous of uniting 
with them, In their common work. 1 raise 
the que«tion whether a church should 
be recognized as belonging to the body 
of Christ unless it is willing to enter Into 
the world wide work for which Christ 
pledged his life. 

Does fellowship mean that churches 
are to receive everything and give noth- 
ing? Is that what fellowship meant at 
Corinth, and Antioch and Jerusalem? It 
would especially seem that churches 
which receive aid from home missionary 
societies should recognize a particular 
obUgatiion to the sisterhood of churches 
to which they belong. No denomination 
uses compulsion in such matters, but 
there is a constraint of love which will 
be potent for a better showing when the 
new benevolence comes In. 

Fellow Endeavorers, here Is a field for 
you. You came to this convention, ac- 
cording to the statement of President 
Hunt, not so much to receive as to do. 
Here is something definite for you to do 
as individuals. Do this: Go home to your 
church and your society determined to 
give henceforth a definite, proportion of 
vour income to the Lord. Then as loyal 
"members of your church, interested in 
all its life, use your Influence toward 
promoting benevolence. Acquaint your- 
self with the missionary societies con- 
nected with your own denomination. See 
that your church contributes regularly 
to each one. Give discriminatoly to each 
vourself, and urge others to do the fame. 
Consider it is your duty to attend to this 
work if no one else is doing it. I have 
tried to indicate what the new benevo- 
lence is. As for when its arrival is due. 
let mc just say in closing that It will be 
here when our Christian Endeavolrers 
make giving the most Important work of 
their societies. May thfe Lord speed the 

Rev. John Sinclair, of Redwood Falls, 
then read an address upon "Soul Win- 
ning," after expressing his gratitude for 
the hospitality he had met in a heartfelt 
manner. He said: 

Caesar, he said, at the head of a well 
disciplined army, which he had trained 
for the purpose of taking Rome, halted 
his men when he reached the Rubicon 
and lingered long on the northern banks 
of the stream. To pass It was to declare 
war against the Roman republic. At last 
he shouted: "The die is cast," throw 
himself into the river, swam across and 
was followed by his stalwart men. In a 
few days Rome, the Mistress of the 
World, lay at his feet and Caesar was 
the emperor of the whole civilized globe. 
Christian Endeavorers, in the religious 
world during the last few years, more 
than anything else, reminded him of that 
march of Caesar's. The religious youth 
of America had already crossed the Rubi- 
con of timidity and Its serried ranks 
were marching on the capltol of the 
enemy. Caesar's men were clad In com- 
plete war accoutrements, without which 
they could not have taken Rome. If it 
would level the battlements of sin, Chris- 
tian Endeavor needed to be clad in the 
whole armor of God. If it would win 
others and bring them into the ranks of 
the King of Kings, the armor must be 
complete. It was not too great an as- 
sumption to premise that, in the three 
million Endeavorers, there were a num- 
ber who were not yet equipped with the 
full armor of the King. In their society 
at Redwood Falls they had an evangelis- 
tic committee, and heliad observed that 
others as well as they were seeing the 
need of the evangelistic idea and taking 
action accordingly. This was the 
grandest feature yet of Christian Endea- 
vor work. Complete Identity with 
Christ within the ranks and an aim at 
complete identity with Christ and noth- 
ing short of this, in the case of those 
who were brought in, was the feature 
that would count for most In the eyes of 
God and man. Two years ago members 
of the Redwood Falls society and he to- 
gether had pleaded with Miss Holbrook 
to come and do evangelistic work for a 
week or two in their town. The same 
appeal had been more recently made to 
Miss Holbrook, but she modestly refused 
on the ground of fear that she was not 
fitted for such work. The whole Tracy 
district, comprising a thousand members, 
thought differently. They believed that 
the state secretary was eminently quali- 
fied for soul winning, and would vote 
unanimously that she with Mr. Hunt 
should be set apart by the State 
Endeavor union as state Chris- 
tian Endeavor evangelist. Such 
evangelists, appointed definitely 

for the young, might reasonably be ex- 
pected, in any community, to draw the 
young more effectively than the ordinary 
evangelist. With the Imprimatur of 
Christ which they already possessed, and 
the imprimatur of the state union, this 
departure in the state work from its in- 
ception would, without doubt, involve 
untold blessing. 

It was a great object to have myriads 
of young men and women enrolled in the 
membership of Christian Endeavor, com- 
ing under religious influences; but the 
object of superlative magnitude was that 
every member should be fully won in 
soul for Christ, and that they In turn 
should have before them as the object of 
biggest bulk the winning of other souls 
for Christ. For this work, in every indi- 
vidual, three things were necessary. 
In that popular book, "Ships That 
Pass in the Night," there was one valu- 
able chapter, the chapter on "High 
Ideals." A traveler climbed to the top of 
a high chain of mountains called "The 
Ideals." On the top there was a temple. 
He rang the bell, which was answered by 
an old white haired man: "Tell me if I 
have come to thei Temple of Knowledge," 
said the traveler. The old man replied: 
"This is not the Temple of Knowledge; 
the Ideals are not a chain of mountains, 
they are a stretch of plains and the 
Temple of Knowledge is in their center. 
Go down and tell men that the Ide>als are 
on their own plains, where their great 
cities are built, where their grain grows, 
and where men and women are toiling, 
sometimes In sorrow an(J. sometimes In 

High idealism was an easy stumbling- 
block for Christian Endeavorers. There 

was the danger of soaring too high and 
forgetting that there is an Ideal in the 
most commonplace acts of everyday life. 
Christ perforn»ed an ideal act when He 
sat down with one woman at the well 
and spake to her some of the greatest 
words recorded In the New Testament. 
It was said of Christ, in relation to a 
sick man: "He took him by the hand 
and lifted hlni up." Christ even did not 
often attempt to lift men In crowds. The 
best of His work was done with Indi- 
viduals in His ordinary path of duty. 
The Christ-life in men's social relations 
was the great winning power. To take 
a man literally by the hand and give 
him a rousing hearty hand shake and 
welcome him to the society had often 
won a man for the society, and through 
it, for Christ. He had recently visited a 
large Endeavor society in Chicago. A 
young man stood at the do6r with a 
iiand like a vice and insisted on shaking 
hands with every stranger as the 
stranger passed in and out. An- 
other young man came and handed him 
a Bible and hymn book and spoke a 
word of welcome. That society was on 
fire. It could not be anything else. It 
was the Christ-like life'^'on our plains," 
in the society, in the store, the office, on 
the farm: the life of gentleness, kindness, 
sympathy. Interest, that drew men. 
What Christ required of His followers 
was that each should be a little Christ 
to his fellowman. Christ was far moi>? 
a Christ, in the ordinary acceptation of 
the term, to His fellowmen in the midst 
of His everJay duties than He was in 
His great sermon on the mount. The 
president of a society had lately said to 
him: "We can't get the members to 
speak," but immediately added, "Well, 
I don't know that their .speaking would 
do much good, some of them are so in- 
consistent through the week." 

Sincerity was a great feature of 
Christ's life. He was In red hot earnest 
in everything He said and did. Moody 
used to talk about being "Boiling hot in 
the work." The sincerity that is born 
of Christ-likeness and the fire that is the 
outcome of God's spirit was more largely 

Interestedness was a great feature of 
Christ's life. The president of a society 
should sit down with every committee 
when it was appointed and every member 
should be on some committee, and press 
the question: "Are you lntereste<l in 
the work of your committee?" Joshua 
knew how to push the people into a 
corner by repeated questions, till he 
wrung from their inmost hearts the 
answer: "The Lord our God will we 
serve and His voice will we obey." 
Joshuas who would press the matter 
of Interest in all phases of Y. P. S. C, E. 
work were much needed in the societies 
of Christian Endeavor. 

Aggressiveness was a great feature of 
Christ's life. He had heard Dr. Egbert 
say at a presbytery meeting, two weeks 
ago, that an aggressive church meant a 
church in which every one of its mem- 
bers was aggressive. There was too 
much leaning on one another for taking 
the first step. Let any one member, 
Caesar-like, strike out and others would 
rapidly follow. 

It might be there were young men in 
the ranks of Christian Endeavor who 
were not prepared to accept the church 
doctrine of the Person of Christ. The 
advice of Dr. Marcus Dods to such a 
man was: "Lay yourself alongside 
Christ for six months, imbibe His spirit 
from the gospels, and before the six 
months are done you will believe with 
your whole being that He is none else 
than the Son of God and a living Person 
who fulfills His promise with His peo- 
ple always." 

A strange command was given by 
Christ after His resurrection when He 
said to the women: "Tell My disciples 
that they go into Galllle. There shall 
they see Me." It is added: "They went 
into the place where Jesus had appointed 
them." There they got from Him the 
two greatest promises of the Bible, the 
promise of His power and of His pre- 
sence. They enjoyed while receiving 
these promises His personal presence. If 
Endeavorers during the week and on the 
Lord's day were in Jesus' appointed 
places, living out the Endeavor pledge 
which they had solemnly made to their 
Lord, they would have His power for 
work and His presence for joy. 
What was the seci^t of the unparal- 
leled success of Christian Endeavor 
work? It was answered in few words; 
the Bible and prayer. The youth of the 
world pledging itself to pray and read 
the Bible every day had thereby de- 
veloped a power already which was be- 
ing markedly felt throughout society, 
which corrupt political institutions were 
beginning to dread. But in twenty-five 
years after this he predicted there would 
be fewer of these institutions to raise an 
alarm cry. for by that time, according to 
the present ratio in which Christian En- 
deavor members were multiplying, poli- 
tics, business and social affairs, as well 
as things more purely spiritual, would 
have their principles grounded in accord- 
ance with the word of God and prayer. 

The responsive reading of the word of 
God at that convention, in the lips of 
such a large number of delegates, was an 
inspiring sound. The Lord's prayer in 
the lips of the convention was more in- 
spiring. What produced those feelings? 
Wonderful it would have been if such 
feelings had not been produced, for in 
reading, delegates had taken into their 
lips the direct message of God to man. 
while in offering the Lord's prayer, they 
had taken into their lips the specific 
message of man to God. The systematic 
reading and systematic prayer in the lips 
of millions of the youth of the country 
was now exercising an influence the 
depth of which could not be fathomed. 

He remembered some years ago dis- 
cussing with a minister the subject of 
early religious impressions. That min- 
ister had said: "'Though it is twenty 
years since, I can remember well a ser- 
mon that Dr. Wright preached in my 
father's pulpit." The question was 
asked: "What did Dr. Wright say that 
impressed you so much?" "Oh. I don't 
remember so much what he said as I re- 
member what he spoke about. His text 
was: 'He was oppressed and He was 
afflicted, so He onened not His mouth.' 
and I thought, though I was only a child, 
that it was so great a shame to put such 
a grand man to death." It was the word 
of God and not man that had left the 
Impression. "The word of God is quick 
and powerful and sharper than any two- 
edged sword." Let Endeavorers stick 
to the pledge: "1 promise to read the 
Bible every day." 

For seventeen years he had been in the 
habit of getting at Christmas a text- 
diary- It hung over his dressing table 
A new leaf was torn off every morning 
while dressing, and a new text presented 
itself every day. Apart from Bible read- 
ing, it was a good thing to get a morsel 
from the W^ord into the lips and mind 
the first thing in the morning. Some 
delegatee might find difficulty in getting 
time for reading in the piorning. Get a 
diary of texts and it would en- 
sure ao<iualntance with a new 
bk of the word of God 
every day of the year. After dressing. 
a man's external appearance was 
changed for the better. With this addi- 
tional mirror, why should not the in- 
ward man be changed? "We, beholding 
as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are 
changed." Gotl's w«rd was God's mir- 
ror. Speak the text aloud. Let it be in 
the lips. The Wpsl were the avenue to the 
soul. , . ^ 

Thefe were mistakes made about 
prayer. Men were in the habit of say- 
ing they could pi-ay in heart without the 
outward forms. It was possible, but it 
was not often done. When a man told 
you he praved after going to bed. if was 
doubtful if there was much heart put 
into it. He had heard Drummond. say 
thAt the battle was half fought for the 
winning of a soul If the man was gut 

to go to his knees In prayer for himself. 
The lips and the knees were huge factors 
In Y. P. 8. work. Let no Endeavorer 
neglect knee devotion at home, and if 
the devotions were spoken by the lips so 
audibly that the man could at least hear 
them himseilf, the devotion's were of 
more value to him. The hardest piece of 
work most young Endeavorers got to do 
was to take in any form, apart from 
reading, the name of Jesus Into the lips 
for the first time. This should be tender- 
ly encouraged. 

In the midst of the emotionalism of a 
revival it was a common enough thing 
to see young men laying hold of their 
fellows in the street with the question, 
"Are you .^aved?" Though the Lord 
sometimes blessed blunders, that was a 
blunder that was seldom blessed. The 
plan best sujted to the Christian Endea- 
vorer was Individual dealing with Indi- 
viduals. A text usually was the most 
I>otenl instrument. Texts stuck like 
nothing else. If he might refer to a 
chapter In his own life, he had to say 
that one of the most vivid of religious 
impressions he now had w*as when he 
was 4 or .'» years of age, when a godly 
aunt one day, leading him by the hand 
to church over a .solitary Scottish mour, 
looked down in his face, quoted the text, 
"A new heart will I give thee." and then 
asked the question, "Do you think you 
have got the new heart?" Another im- 
pression he remembered well was the 
result of a student with whom he was 
on intimate terms asking him one day as 
they walkeil arm in arm to Edinburgh 
university, "But aren't you a Christian?" 
A third impression was made two years 
later when a minister cousin said to him 
one night as they retired to rest, "I am 
going to pray ."specially for you tonight 
after I go upstairs." Christ in the lips, 
for the junior and senior Endeavorer 
alike, was a great power in the Endea- 
vorer's own life, and eternity only would 
reveal the power it had been in the life 
of others. Paul believed so strongly in 
having in the lips that in one 
place he put the mouth before the heart: 
"If thou Shalt confess with thy mouth 
the Lord Jesus, and believe in thine 
heart that God raised him from the dead, 
thou Shalt be saved; for with the heart 
man believeth unto righteousness, but 
with the mouth confesston is made unto 

The most uniquely original estimate 
of a soul ever made had been made by 
Jesus when he said, "What shall it 
profit a man if he gain the whole world 
and Icee his ow^n soul." There might be 
the semblance of Jesus in the life and 
the nameH>r words of Jesus in the lips, 
but what every soul-winner felt with his 
whole being that he needed most was a 
Jesus, a savior, a Christ to fill his heart, 
to possess his soul. The hymn said, 
"Take the world but give me Jesus." 
Only when Jesus was implanted in the 
heart of the Endeavorer would the En- 
deavorer have anythlng^ like the estimate 
of Jesus of a soul. If Jesus filled the 
heart the desire of the Endeavorer would 
then be, "Take the world and give it 

A week before Christmas two years ago 
he had failed to get his mail from the old 
country on Wednesday, as he used to do. 
Thursday and Friday passed and Satur- 
day brought the tidings that the mail 
steamer Umbria was lying disabled in 
the Atlantic. Several steamers had 
spoken her and had offered to tow her to 
New York, but she had refused all the 
offers. It seemed strange, A German 
captain who had offered the Umbria help 
was interviewed about the matter, and 
he said that the captain of the Umbria 
was a sensible man. He was lying in 
smooth water until he got his machinery 
repaired, that he might come ashore by 
his own steam power. A tow rope would 
be well enough In a smooth sea. but as 
they met with the breakers near the 
land, if that tow rope broke, with the 
Umbrla's machinery powerless to propel 
her, she would go to the bottom with her 
700 passengers and crew. Men were 
found pinning their faith to churches, 
C. E. Societies or individuals, and being 
lowed along by them all the time. That 
might pass fairly well in life, but there 
were always breakers between a man 
and the haven. When the tow rope 
broke what would the end be? Only a 
living Christ in the heart to carry a man 
through life by a power within himself 
was satisfactory to the man himself, 
and by nothing less than this power 
within him, the power of a living Christ 
in a living heart, would he draw other 
souls to Christ, 

Three things more than all others a 
man could speak of as his own peculiar- 
ly. "My own sin." every man could say. 
"The Hebrew poet knew about this when 
he wrote: 

"After thy loving kindness, Lord, 

Have mercy upon me; 
For thy compassions great blot out 

All mine iniquity. 

"Me cleanse from sin and thoroughly 

From mine iniquity; 
For my transgressions I confess. 

My sin I ever see." 

Christ had made it possible that every 
man could say peculiarly, "My own sal- 
vation." Christ has done this by pay- 
ing the debt of sin in his own body on 
the tree and procuring for the sinner a 
full salvation. After one of Napoleon's 
successful campaigns a young soldier sat 
in his tent one night writing a letter to 
his mother, telling her of the toils and 
hardships he had recently endured, but 
the prospect of an early discharge and 
of seeing his mother once more filled his 
heart with joy. He had one burden. 
There was a money encumbrance on the 
farm and he was troubled about its 
payment. His heart grew sad in the 
thought of it and he added the words, 
"But who will pay the debt, mother?" 
With his caudle burning beside him he 
fell asleep. The great general, as was 
his wont, made a round of the tents be- 
fore retiring. He observed the light and 
determined to investigate for himself. 
He entered the tent, read the letter and 
was touched by the last sentence. He 
took the pen and wrote under the ques- 
tion the two words, "Napoleon Bona- 
parte." The soldier slept till morning. 
When he lifted the letter and saw the 
general's name he was startled, but con- 
cluded that he was the victim of a prac- 
tical joke. With the letter in his hand 
he sought an audience with the general 
and asked him what it meant. The re- 
ply w'as that it meant just what it said, 
that Napoleon would pay the debt. With 
a heart full of gratitude he finished the 
letter in a sentence: "Mother, dear. 
Napoleon has paid the debt." That was 
the way by which a man could .say of 
Christ peculiarly. "He is all my salvation 
and all my desire." 

More precious still was it when a man 
could .si>eak of Christ hlm.self as ills 
own property and say. "My own savior." 
The greatest day in the life of any 
human being was when that soul could 
sav. "Mv beloved is mine and I am his." 
The thrill of joy that accompanied that 
assurance never died. A presence had 
come in. a person, a savior wht>se eternal 
promise was, "Lo I am witli yt>u all the 
days, even to the end of the world." 

Was there a heart there who did not 
have the assurance of a Christ filling it? 
The Christ of Calvary and of the throne 
was there now and yearned to make his 
home in every heart. One of the Puri- 
tan writers had said that mercy's gate 
had two inscriptions, one outside and 
one Inside. A trembling sinner i^me to 
the gate fearing it was not a gate for 
him. "See what is written over the 
door," said a voice to him. He looked 
above and li> it was written. "Him that 
cometh unto m«' 1 will In nowise cast 
out." That surely was for him. The door 
opened. He pressed in. Turning round 
when he had entered he read the other 
inscription. "All that the father hath 



Sold Everywhere. Sold Everywhere. 


given me shall come to me." Then he 
understood the whole mystery of grace. 

A little girl came before a church ses- 
sion asking for admi:?sion to the Lord's 
table. The session thought she was too 
young to understand what she was doing 
and asked her to tell them In her own 
words how she had been saved. She 
promptly answered: "Oh, I just saw 
the door .standing wide open and I 
walked in." That was about the most 
older people could tell one another of the 
way of salvation. Mercy's gate stood 
wide open and the greatest sinner found 
an entrance there. That convention, with 
all the attendant power of the Spirit 
they had been experiencing, was mercy's 
open gate, and from witiiin was heard 
the voice of Jesus calling, "Come unto 

"Then come to Christ, oh. come today, 
The Father. Son, and Spirit say; 

The Bride repeats the call. 
For he will cleanse the grullty stains; 
He will relieve the weary pains. 

For Christ is all in all. 

Yes. Christ is all. all in all; 
Yes, Christ is all In all." 

The convention then adjourned for 
evangelistic ser\'ices in different parts 
of the city, and several open-air meet- 
ings were again held. 


The closing hour of the Christian En- 
deavor convention came Sunday night, 
and the last session packed the great High 
School auditorium with its seating capa- 
city of 2000. and the overflow filled the 
First M. E. church. The Endeavorers 
began to gather early and by 7 o'clock 
every available seat was occupied, and 
those who came later were compelled to 
stand. Then the great crowd waited 
patiently for the opening hour. Some 
one up in the St. Paul gallery started a 
hymn and soon the whole auditorium 
was singing Endeavor songs sung as 
only Endeavorers can sing them. 

At 7:30 o'clock President Hunt intro- 
duced Rev. Dr. Cleland. of the First 
Presbyterian church of Duluth, who led 
in devotional exercises, after reading the 
sixth chapter of Ephesians. commencing 
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the 
Lord and in His might. ' Then Presi- 
dent Hunt told about the efficacy of 
echo meetings, and the congregation 
sang "Scatter the Sunshine. ' 


Professor A. H. Peaj-son, of Northfield, 
w-as introduced to speak on Christian 
Endeavor as an educator, and wa? 
listened to with breathless interest. He 

An eminent educator assures us that 
"the logic of science is action and only 
by busy brains and busy hands can the 
recognized evils of the world be lessened 
or removed." A still more eminent teach- 
er, more direct and accurately expresses 
the truth in the phrase "If ye know these 
things, happy are ye if ye do them." 
The genius of the Christian Endeavor 
organization appears in its successful ef- 
fort to put Into practice the precept of 
the great teacher of men. A society 
which in fourteen years can leap from a 
membership of 56 to one of 2,500,000 
surely has in it something more than the 
sympathetic relations of social feelings. 
An analysis of the active members 
pledge which is the root of the organi- 
zation, shows an assertion of dependence 
upon Jesus Christ, a pledge to him of 
obedience, of prayer, of daily Bible read- 
ing, of church loyalty, of in general a 
Christian life, and a pledge to fellow- 
members to specific co-operation in each 
meeting. As a matter of educational in- 
fluence this pledge i s psyelogically 
complete, even as the precept of Jesus 
is complete. The pledge is an appeal to 
the will and when given, is an act of will 
or an expression of character. The extent 
to which it is actually executed is a 
matter for investigation. Present meth- 
ods in education call for teachers who can 
incite the pupil to self-exertion. The 
true spirit of study is the spirit of per- 
sonal investigation. Aristote informs 
us that the mind grows not by knowl- 
edge but by acting. The mind is a 
flame to be fanned, not a vessel to be 
filled. As Mark Hopkins says: "The 
highest education gives character rather 
than knowledge— it trains men to be, 
rather than to know." In other words we 
seek power. And not knowledge but 
rather the right use of knowledge, is 
power. Christian Endeavor is endeavor, 
it is active, it is primarily effort in a 
distinct field: the field of the religious 
life. Religion is effort towards God. 
According to the precept of Jesus, re- 
ligion is not knowledge, it is not feeling, 
it is the choice of God, Many well-mean- 
ing people identify religion with un- 
executed feeling or sentimentalism. Re- 
ligious sentiment or feeling in view of 
religious truth is good; but if it fails to 
express itself in action, it soon fades 
into sentimentalism— it is vain. Christ- 
ian Endeavor trains this effort-making 
capacity of our Christian youth. These 
young people are young, the most of 
them. But if youth with its immaturity 
be a misfortune, time will never permit 
it to become a fault. These youths are 
in training for manhood and woman- 
hood. The day is coming when these 
2 r.00.000 vouth will act in the eye of 
the world. Tliey are acting now. $425.- 
000 for missions and within the past six 
years 816.000 souls brought into church 
membershli>— these facts are in the realm 
of the will— they are not vapid sentimen- 
talism. - . 

Many Endeavoi-ers fail to respond to 
the educational stimulus of the pledge. 
But the percentage is far below that of 
the adult church member in their treat- 
ment of their vows. There is much un- 
executed emotion— but far less than in 
any other class of young people. Young 
people as a class have vastly more 
feeling to be executed than have their 

The fundamental question in this 
worlds life is not a question of knowl- 
edge but of performance. God's law and 
human needs are before our eyes and In 
our ears. The pressing point is to get 
that law done and those needs met. "If 
any man will do His will, he shall know.'' 
Obedience is the organ of all spiritual 
and of all other knowledge. The Christ- 
ian Endeavor society gets this law dcHie 
and these needs met through two effect- 
ive agencies: 1. The consecration meet- 
ings. Men need a supernatural motive 
for the performance of their duty to- 
ward their fellow men. This meeting is 
an expression of affection toward God. 
It is for woi-shlp, and the result, pro- 
proportion to the moral earnestness of 
the worshipper. Is an inspiration to a life 
of service. 

2. The working committees. These 
committees express the practical judg- 
ment of the members and assist in the 
execution of well-defined purposes. These 

committees are effective promoters of 
a sense of responsibility. Their effic- 
iency is not that of the matured 
thoroughly trained man of the street; but 
It is that of the school preparatory to 
the responsibilities of maturity. The 
educational influence of the society Is 
evident also In its systematic and organ- 
ized fields for effort. The pledge is "a 
specific pledge of service." It is also the 
pledge of an organized multitude. This 
multitude does not lack definit<-ness of 

The field of mi-ssions. home and foreign 
is an accepted field for effort. The widest 
sympathies for a suffering world are 
here developed and find expression in 
personal energy, transformed into money 
and personal service for the relief of 
men. God's providence is world-wide 
What more expansive infiuence can be 
brought into young people's lives than 
that of co-operation with God! 

The field of patriotic service. The 
Christian Endeavor pledge affects the 
ballot as it drops into the box. May 
that influence soon be a "flying wedge" 
Please God, it will .soon reach those who 
execute the will that that ballot ex- 
presses. The Christian Endeavor citizen 
is the best citizen. And this best citizen 
will be sober and in all sobriety he will 
deal with those who dethrone man's 

3. The field of organized religion 
which is Christs body— the church. The 
young Christian in the society will serve 
that larger society which as a social 
institution reveals Christ to a lost world 
He will promote the fellowship of all be- 
lievers, especially those of the local 
household of faith. The systematic and 
orderly development of power in Christ- 
ian youth will transform the living 
churches of Christ into united witnesses 
for Him as they face a suffering world 
with offers of helpful service. 

At the conclusion of his remarks every- 
one sang the "Minnesota Rallying Song" 
to the air of "Marching Through Geor- 
gia," and then Professor Drakes great 
chorus of 150 voices rendered West"s 
.magnificent anthem. "The Lord is Ex- 
alted." As the strains of the grand old 
anthem died away a hush fell on the 
audience. Everyone felt uplifted and 
purified by the magnificent outburst of 
song. It was a spontaneous tribute to 
Professor Drake and his chorus. 

In introducing Rev. Matt Hughes, of 
Minneapolis, to deliver the convention 
^rmon. President Hunt said: "The fact 
:hat he has been chosen in this place 
ind that he is greeted by this large as- 
sembly is all that I need to say." 

Dr. Hughes selected his text from 
Revelation xi, 15. '"And the seventh 
angel sounded, and there were great 
voices in heaven saying. 'The kingdoms 
of this world are become the kingdom 
of our Lord and of His Christ.' " 

"Not many months ago." said the 
speaker, "in some respects the greatest 
religious gathering that has ever met on 
this globe of ours assembled at Chicago. 
Chosen representatives from all parts of 
the world voiced those two great funda- 
mental doctrines of Christianity, the 
fatherhood of God and the brotherhood 
of man. The closing hour came and the 
great gathering dispersed to all parts of 
the world, after listening to the stray 
thoughts of the meeting crystalized. but 
the ablest of modern speakers. The 
question arose, will there ever be a time 
when any religion shall have become 
paramount on the globe? 

"Everywhere you go you find a dif- 
ferent kind of religion, even among our- 
selves, but the time will come when there 
is but one religion in the world. Chris- 
tianity is the religion of universality. 
In ever>- department of human thought 
men are not .satisfied with things that 
are purely local, but they want univer- 
sality. The time is coming when men 
shall give their entire thought to one 
creed the world over. Conservation of 
energy and corelation of forces are two 
great principles. 

"It does not take long to realize that 
men the world over are under one com- 
mon physical law. Just as they are 
under one common law in spiritual 
things. We are at one in our spiritual 
interests. It belonged to the nineteenth 
century to break down the great barriers 
which separate men from each other, 
and they are broken down. The great 
globe is today one vast neighborhood, 
and the railroads are an evangelizing 
force. We are mingling the nations of 
the earth. As men mingle together we 
find our wants are the same. Again I 
say the two great fundamental truths 
of Christianity are the fatheihood i>f 
God and the brotherhood of man. You 
can reason up to the fatherhood of God 
from the brotherht)od of man. 


"It is a question of the survival of the 
fittest. We find this exemplified in lan- 
guages, in literature and in inventions. 
St. Paul illustrated the theory of the 
survival of the fittest long before Darwin 
when he said, 'When that which is i>er- 
fect has come, then that which is in part 
shall be done away.' The old religions 
of the Grct^ks. the Romans and the an- 
cient Scandinavians are dead. Without 
a priest and without a temple. SiiK-e 
Mahommedanifsm, which is a caricature 
of the Old Testament, there has arisen 
no new" religrion in the world. 

"The question arises, what religion 
.shall survive? There is bu; one answer, 
the religitui of Jesus Christ. It is the 
ivligion of promise, of prophtvy, of faith, 
which all take hold on the future. It is 
the religion of pn^gress, and progress 
takes hold on the future. The time will 
come when 'the kingdoms of this world 
will btvome the kingdom of our Lonl 
and of His Christ.' 

"One of the main points in favor of 
Christian universality is its catholicity. 
It is not every religion which is fitted 
for universal dominion. Many religions 
are purely local or national. The reli- 
gion of Zoi-easter was always confined 
to the same tribe, Confucianism to China 
and the old Roman religion was only 
national. There arc only thnv religions 
which by any strength of the imagina- 
tion are fitted for universalism. The first 
of these is Mohammedanism. At one 
time the followers of Mahomet threat- 
ened to overrun the civilizeil world. 
Now. when the time arisi^s when human- 
ity shall rise above f»olltical reasoning, 
the sultan of Turkey, the head of the 
Mohammedan religion, shall be hurleil 
from his throne. No religion based uj>on 
polygamy can survive. Buddhism can 
never take possession of our stirring 
Western life. In all the time of its exi.'^- 
tence it has never dominated a single

An Eye Witness Details the 
Recent Stamboul Ar- 
menian Massacre. 

Mutilated Bodies oF the Dead 

Were Dumped in the 


Some of the Armenians Were 

Killed While They Were 

Asleep or Eating. 

Chicag-o. Oct. 25. — A letter received 
today, from Constantinople, by a mem- 
ber of the Armenian National union of 
this city, from 11 young lady who was 
an eye-witness of the recent riots, and 
members of whose family were among 
the victim says: "On the Monday of the 
holy cross, immediately after the 
church service some fifty young men of 
from 14 to 20 years of age proceeded to 
the Bat)ilian sublime porte to present 
a j>etition to the grand vizier. They 
had no evil intentions whatever. About 
half of this number had their revolvers 
and the other half had no weapons at 
all. Hut they were ill-treated by the 
police who beat and slapped their pe- 
titions in their faces. 

"One young man fired at the major 
who fell dead from the wound he re- 
ceived. Some of the major's men fell 
dead to<:>. At this point the cavalry were 
summone<l to the scene. They patrol- 
led the streets and riding up and down 
they trampled many under the feet of 
their horses. who escaped death 
this way were beaten to death with tht< 
.swords of the soldiers. Hardly from ten 
to fifteen were left alive from this 
group. This was the first conflict. 

"The Galatea bridge was closed to all 
Christians and Armenians, only Mo- 
hammedans, fn>m Oalateri, were al- 
lowed to come over to Stamboul. All 
were armed with swords. The Moham- 
medan residents helped the massacre 
by throwing d^jmestic utensils, namely, 
kettles, lamps, plates, fire shovels, etc.. 
upon the Armenian young men. In 
half an hour all the Softas. Mixihagiers 
and Lazes were let loose with their 
wives from the Mohammedan mosques. 
Some had their bludgeons, others their 
knives, others stones, and after making 
the streets clear of Armenian men and 
women, they attacked those khans in 
which Armenians were living. 

"Th^- forced the doors open and killed 
every one they found. Few escaped 
death. Many Armenian porters that 
were found in the streets were butch- 
ered. The corpses of the dead were car- 
ried in the night in dirt wagons and 
dumped into the sea. Out of 20<) resi- 
dents of Tchatal khan, 1.^0 were found 
killed and the remaining fifty were 
wounded. No one Is to be found from 
the Anlelleh class (those who are de- 
pendant upon dally labor work). The 
houses across from the Church of 
Karagorog were attacked and many 
killed. Miasak, the brother of Rev. 
Khoren, of C;adlg Pasha, his (Misak's) 
mother-in-law, and his wife were cruel- 
ly butchered. The body of Mlsak's 
pregnant wife was mutilated and the 
body u^the unborn child lay by her 

"The 14-year-old daughter of Mlsak, 
seeing the horrible death of her par- 
ents, crletl out that she was a Moham- 
medan and has thus far escaped death. 
Many are of this class. All of the Ar- 
menians have great api»rehenslons for 
their lives. Some say we will be killed 
tonight, others say tomorrow. In the 
Kassim Pasha quarter many were taken 
unawares and killed while at meals or 

"The weapons used by the Turks 
were stones and bludgeons. Most of 
this havoc uT Stamboul was wrought 
by the Bashl-Bazouks, Irregulars (those 
who are not In active military service), 
and the Tesshanehlese, criminals who 
have been convicted to hard labor In 
the Imperial arsenal." 


Good Scores Being Made At 

Baltimore, Md., Oct. 25.— Shooting for 
the Dupont trophy and the world'scham- 
pionshlp was resumed this morning at 
the grounds of the Baltimore Shooting 
as.soclatlon. When the shooting was 
left off at dusk last night, twelve of the 
marksmen had killed each of the eleven 
birds he had shot at, and about as many 
had a record of ten killed. The shoot- 
ing is being done over one set of ground 
traps, and as there are fifty contestants 
and fourteen birds for each man, aside 
from ties, it may be another day before 
the match is decided. 

The winner will get besides the trophy 
and the championship, $518 In cash; the 
.«econd man gets $388; and the third. $129. 
The marksmen are amusing themselves 
while waiting for their turns In the big 
shoot by similar "smaller sweeps" miss 
and outs with the two other sets of traps 
on the grounds. 

Joseph Dumoe appeare<l in the muni- 
cipal court this morning charged by C. 
A. Young, of West Duluth. with the lar- 
ceny of a heavy lumber wagon, valued at 
$40. The wagon was located on the 
range, and the case was continued until 
Tuesday morning to give the claimant a 
chance to prove his property. Bonds 
were fixed at $200 and promptly fur- 

Cleveland, Oct. 25. — The annual conven- 
tion of the association of collegiate 
alumnae be^ran here today. An addrf-ss 
of welcome was delivered by Miss Emma 
M. Perkin*". president of the Ohio branch. 
Mrs. Martha Foote Crowe, of Chicago, 
president of the association, responded, 
after which the annual reports of the 
treasurer, Mrs. Mary Roberts Smith, of 
Leland Stanford I'niversity, of Califor- 
nia, was read, followed' by the reports 
of the various state directors. Miss 
Mary E. Adams, of Cleveland, read a 
pajK-r on "The Local Work of .\Uimnae," 
' after which the committee on the pro- 
' po«*d amendments 80 the constitution 
reported. Miss Laura D. Gill, of North- 
' ampton, Mass., read a paper on "The 
' New Opportunities for Women in the 
'• Universities of Germany." 


Vicksburg Wants One of the 
Military Order. 

Vicksburg. Miss., Oct. 25. — One of the 
ri"sults of the great gathering of Western 
men here In attendance at the wateinvays 
convention has been the organization of 
the Vicksburg National Military Park as- 
.soclatlon, whose charter Is now In course 
o( preparation, and whose Incorporators 
are such men as (.Jen. Lee, CJen. Raalger. 
Gen. John B. Gordon, ex-Governor 
Hoard, of Wisconsin, Col. Fred D. Grant 
and many others of equal jnomlnence In 
civil life, or the great conflict between 
the states. 

The object of the organization is the 
foundation of a national park here simi- 
lar to those at Gettysburg and Chlcka- 
niauga Park, which bord. r the city on 
three sides, and be, as ont* promotor ex- 
presses it, a monument to American man- 
hood. The ofllcers of the association 
are Gen. Stephen D. l..ef, of Mississippi, 
prtsident; Maj. C. L. Da,vidson, Iowa, 
vice president; Capt. VV. T. Rugby, of 
Iowa, secretary; Col. C. C. Flowers. 
Vicksburg. treasurer. 

Tht» project is not a new one, bwt has 
won sudden favor, and the West is said 
to be in its favor. The Incorporators are 
almost equally drawn from the ranks 
of both armies. The enterprise was en- 
dorsed by the- recent reunion of the (;. A. 
R. at Louisville. 


Ex-President Wright Talks 
About the Road. 

New York, Oct. 25.— Charles B. 
Wright, of Pennsylvania, a former di- 
rector of the Northern Pacific railroad, 
and still one of Its large security hold- 
ers, says that J. J. Hill <ltclares that a 
decision in Great Northern matters will 
be rendered In Mr. Hill's favor within 
sixty days. Mr. Wright added: "That 
Is, however, an uphill Job. The North- 
ern Pacific Is Independent, and a new 
organization will be effected wholly 
outside the Hill Interest. Within six 
months I predict the Northern Pacific 
will be reorganized by its own securi- 
ty holders." 

The Adams reorganization committee 
held a meeting last night to consider the 
advisability of agreeing upon a well 
known financial man suggested by the 
Ives interest for receiver of the road. 
While It was announced that no deci- 
sion was reached, matters are rapidly 
crystalizlng into a general agreement. 
This may be announced this week, or 
possibly a further adjournment may be J 
asked for, pending trial settlements 
now In sight. 




Wherewithal Shall Ye Be Clothed 

As the icy breath of old Boreas sw/eeps around the corner it carries that question right 
home to us. Humanity can no more stand such weather unprotected than can the lilies of the 
field. Remember right now that good, warm clothing is cheaper than doctor bills or funerals. 
Therefore we say: Come unto us all ye who shiver and are lightly mu tiled and we will warm 
you up. Saturday is generally the busiest day of the week at the big Glass Block Store, 
but with ample room and ample help to wait on you we can give prompt, etllcient service.

Some Surprises Gleaned From 
the Enumeration. 

Washington. Oct. 25.— Prussia has just 
completed a census, and some of the 
figures are given In a report to the state 
department by Consul General De bKay-, 
at Berlin. Th^ population Jxinf ^ last 
was 31.491,290, an Increase of 1,535,928, or 
.51 .%100 per cent since December, 1890. 
The males increased 773,051 and the 
females 762,877. In Berlin the Increase of 
females was especially marked, being 
two and a half times that of the males. 

One of the surprises of the new census 
was the small increase of Berlin's popu- 
lation. All the more startling owing to 
the unprecedented increase between the 
years 1870 and 1890. The census shows a 
continuance of the movcmerrt towards 
cities from the country, in which Berlin 
haxl not her usual share. 

Indianapolis. Oct. 2.'..— Judge Cox, of 
the police court. In a test case today, up- 
held the Nicholson liquor law as constitu- 
tional. The section In question was tho 
one forbidding persons other than the 
saloonkeeper and his family to enter the 
saloon In prohibited hours. The defend- 
nnt was Frederick Brandt, who has a 
restaurant attached to his saloon. Under 
today's ruling, restaurants. to which 
b-ir.-? are attached, will have to close when 
the bars shut up. An appeal 1? probable. 
Judge Stubbs, from the same court, be- 
fore retiring from oflice, a m'.nth ag\ 
held this section unconstitutional. 


Constantinople, Oct. 25. — Fierce dl.s- 
turbances accompanied by serious blood- 
shed are reported to have taken place at 
Erzlngjan. Sixty Arm^-nlans are said to 
have been killed. The Turkish govern- 
ment has sent a circular note to the rep- 
resentatives of the powers and to Its rep- 
resentatives abroad announcing that the 
outbreak was provoked by the Armen- 

AleppD, Oct. 25. — According to advices 
received here the Armenians in the dis- 
trict of have attacked the inhab- 
itants of four Turkish villages. 

Canon City, Col., Oct. 25.— Articles of 
Incorporation have been filed with the 
secretary- of state by wealthy capitalists 
of this city for a new railroad from here 
to Cripple Creek. 1*he route proposed Is 
much shorter than the Florence and 
Cripple Creek, and a.< Its entire length 
will be through an open country, the road 
will be free from danger of washouts. 

Denver. Oct. 23.— Department Com- 
mander WheAton has promised Governor 
.Mclntyre that any of the northern t'tirs 
who mav be accused of violating the 
law.s of Colorado will be arrested upon 
their return to their 'reservation and 
brought b«ck to Colorado for trial. The 
intention is tb carKj- the caees succes- 
sively through all th<- courts to the su- 
preme court of the state and then to the 
supreme court of the Inlted States. 

Peoria, 111., Oct. 2).— Grave fears are 
felt at Pekin that an attempt will be 
made to lynch Albert Wallace who was 
senteneed to he hanged today, but was 
eranted superseas by the supreme court. 
Soon after he gave himself up last Feb- 
ruary a mob started twice from Hilton 
township where he murdered his half 
sister. Mrs. B»>lle Bowlby, and in one 
night they reached the outskirts of Pekin. 

Omaha, Oct. 25.— Sioux City officials are 
here to arr^-st Gallagh- r and Chapin. two 
members of the notorious McCarthy gang. 
They are wante<l for the murder of Max 
Noak and Harel Hamilton at that city 
some time since. Th" crime Was very 
mysterious. The officers claim to have 
strong evidence of their guilt.

Why the Republic Strongly 

Resists the Claims of 

Great Britain. 

The British Have Made 
Steady Aggressions Up- 
on Its Territory. 

Ail Overtures For an Agree- 
ment Or For Arbitra- 
tion Rejected. 

Washington, Oct. 25.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— When Georgre Wa.shlng:ton is- 
sued his farewell address to the peo- 
ple of the United States he enunciated 
a principle which meant that no Euro- 
pean power would be allowed to extend 
its territory or holdings upon the con- 
tinent of America without antagoniz- 
ing the United States. When John 
Quincy Adams was secretary of state, 
he practically made a similar declara- 
tion in his dealings with Russia con- 
cerning that country's holdings on this 
continent. In 1823 President Monroe 
enunciated the doctrine having exactlj* 
similar meaning, which doctrine has 
since borne his name. But it was not 
Monroe that formulated the idea upon 
the basis of which the Monroe doctrine 
Is built, for the same principles were 
practically laid ilown in the Declaration 
of Independence. 

There have been one or two depar- 
tures from the strict letter and spirit 
of that doctrine since it was formally 
proclaimed by President Monroe. The 
most glaring departure was that of the 
Clayton-Bulwer treaty wherein the Un- 
ited States allowed Great Britain to 
gft the upperhand of her in a diplo- 
matic battle, but principally throuKh 
misrepresentations, not to say lies of 
thf British minister at that time, who 
made promises which were subsequent- 
ly ivpudiated by the British authoritit-s. 
A year ago, when the trouble occur- 
red in Nicaragua, a great deal was 
heurd among statesmen and a great 
deal was read in the newspapers kbout 
an enforcement of the Monroe doctrine, 
but that doctrine was never intended 
to prevent u European po%ver from en- 
forcing the payment of a just claim 
against any American republic. 

»',reat Britain in occupying the port 
of Corlnto announced that it had no 
Intention of extending its territory', but 
that it simply intended to force Nica- 
ragua to make reparation for an in- 
sult placed upon the British flag. It is 
possible that had there been a weaker 
power behind Nicaragua than the Un- 
ited States, her Britannic majesty's 
government might have seen fit to be 
even more oppressive in its demands 
against Nicaragua than it was. Had 
it n«..t been lyor the plainly stated decla- 
ratiuns of the United States relative to 
the acquisition of territory in America 
by European powers, it is possible that 
Nicaragua might have been wiped from 
the face of the map today so far as its 
autonomy Is concerned. 

The situation in Venezuela, on the 
other hand, is an entirely and distinct- 
ly different proposition. Great Brit- 
ain's colony of Guiana was acquired 
from the Dutch by treaty in 1814. That 
treaty did not clearly define the boun- 
daries between the Spanish and Dutch 
posse-sslons in the Guayanas, but all 
the documents on file In the Spanish 
archives In Madrid as well as in those 
of the Netherlands and in Caracas in- 
dicate clearly that Spain claimed 
sovereignty over all of the territory or 
the Guayanas. or Gulanas, west of the 
Essequlbo river, and Great Britain for 
some time at least never pretended to 
have any right to occupy any portion 
of the lands now In dispute, which be- 
came a part of the Republic of Venezue- 
la when that republic shook off the 
Spanish yoke. 

In a pamphlet issued on the subject 
of British aggressions in Venezuela a 
short time ago, the Hon. William 
Scruggs, late minister of the United 
States to Colombia and Venezuela, he 
gives a brief history of the dispute 
which, in view of the manner In which 
the United States has become compli- 
cated, is of interest at this time. It 
seems from this brochure that a few 
years after the cession of 1814, some 
British traders established outposts 
near the Atlantic coast west of the Es- 
sequibo; and as early as January, 1827, 
a British settlement had sprung up as 
far westward as the mouth of the Mor- 
oco river. But at that time the old 
Colombian union was too much occu- 
pied with International strifes to pay 
much attention to foreign affairs, and 
this first of a long series of aggressions 
was met only by a formal remonstrance 
which seems to have been totally dis- 

The next official reference to the sub- 
ject was in 1841. Venezuela, which had 
been an in'^^pendent republic for about

hino years, now earnestly remonstrated 
against these encroachments, and 
claimed the Essequlbo river as the 
rightful boundary. No Immediate at- 
tention was paid to this. But some 
twelve months afterward, the British 
representative at Cai-acas gave notice 
that one Sir Robert Schomburgh had 
been commissioned to "survev and 
mark out the boundaries of British 
Guayana." The assent and concurrence 
of Venesuela was not asked. A few 
months later w-hen therp had been some 
informal conferences on the subject, 
the British reresentatlve Informed the 
Venezuelan minister of foreign affairs 
that the Demarara colonial govern- 
ment had been Instructed from London 
to resist, by force if necessary, anv 
aggressions on the territories of the 
Guayanas occupied by the independent 
tribes of Indians. 

Realizing her utter inability to wage 
war with so powerful a nation, Venezuela 
proposed some conventional agreement 
as to boundary. This proposition was 
treated with haughty indifferenoe. 
Schomburgh went on with his survey, 
and finally completed and staked off the 
line whichi still bears his name. 

That line may bo briefly described a.<^ 
follows: Beginning near the head waters 
of Che Essequlbo river, some five degrees 
due north from its mouth, it proceeds to 
the River Maju, which it crosses near 
the fourth parallel; it thence deviates 
southwest to Mount Roraima and crosses 
thel Mazaruni river near its head waters, 
some two degrees due west from the 
banks of the Essequlbo at its nearest 
point; it then deflects a little to the north- 
ward, and crossing the great Cuyun.v 
river, passes southward near the head 
waters of the Barima, and thence to the 
mouth of the Amacura above the delta 
of the Orinoco— thus allotting to Great 
Britain not only the entire Atlantic 
coast between the Essequlbo and the 
Orinoco, but also a large section of coun- 
try in the interior. 

Some years later, under the Aberdeen 
administration, when more moderate 
counsels prevailed, the British govern- 
ment very distinctly disclaimed any In- 
tention to occupy this territory, or to 
claim tJie "Schomburgh line" as a pos- 
sible boundary. Lord Aberdeen ex- 
plained to the Venezuelan government 
that •"theeo-called Schomburgh line"was 
never designed other than "merely ten- 
tative" or for convenience in future ne- 
gotiations; and as an evidence of his 
sincerity he proposed a conventional 
boundary line as follows: Beginning at 
the mouth of the Moroco river and run- 
ning southward in general direction to 
the junction of the Barama and Aunama 
rivers; thence southeastward to the Cuy- 
uny: thence along the western margin 
of the last named river to where it re- 
ceives the waters of the "Turuari; thence 
eastward following the general direction 
of the Cuyuny to Its source near Ror- 
aima, and thence in general course due 
eastward to the head waters of the 

This proposition, though very disad- 
vantageous to Venezuela, in that it could 
have deprived her of an immense terri- 
tory whi<?h rightfully belonged to her, 
would, in all probability, have been ac- 
cepted as a compromise had it been made 
in a different spirit and without humil- 
iating conditions. But in submitting it 
Lord Aberdeen said his government was 
"disposed to cede to Venezuela" the ter- 
ritory- beyond the line Indicated, "on con- 
dition that Venezuela would enter into 
an obligation not to alienate any portion 
of it to a third party;" and on the further 
condition that "the Indian tribes therein 
be not oppressed or maltreated by the 
Venezuelan authorities." As this In- 
volved "an acknowledgment of terri- 
torial rights in Guayana which Great 
Britain did not possess, and contained 
besides a restriction derogatory to the 
sovereignty of the republic," it had to be 

Negotiations were, however, continued 
until the .sudden death of the Venezuelan 
envoy, Senor Fqrtique, wh»n they were 
resumed at Caracas. The final result 
was the diplomatic agreement of 1850, 
by which each party was obligated "not 
to occupy any part of the unoccupied ter- 
ritory in dispute" till the question of 
boundaries should be definitely settled. 

From 1850 down to the present time 
various efforts have been made upon the 
part of Venezuela to settle the boundai^y 
dispute. Sometimes it has appeared that 
success was within reach and that an 
established boundary could be agreed 
upon. Venezuela has frequently shown 
her willingness to concede territory to 
which she appears to have absolutely 
clear title, but in each instance, just as a 
settlement seemed certain, the British 
have extended their claims farther and 
farther to the westward until now they 
claim nearly the whole of the territory 
south of the Orinoco river and east of the 
Caroni. This territory abounds in min- 
eral and forest wealth, and in spite of 
the fact that it lies almost upon the 
equator, it affords every advantage for 
successful agriculture and a field for 
colonization which the Orinoco company, 
of Minnesota, which has the concession 
for the northern portion of the delta 
countrj'. Is already preparing to utilize. 

New Agrarian Party 
Stron^i and Very Ag- 
gressive TJiere. 


Proposes to Keep Out All 

Foreign Products oF 

Every Kind. 

Growtli of Tills Movement Is 
Somewhat of an Amer- 
ican IVIenace. 

Washington, Oct. 25.— In a report to 
the state department. United States Con- 
sul De Kay. at Berlin, has depicted In 
vivid style the gi-owth of the formidable 
agrarian party In Germany, and pointed 
out the menace It holds to the producers 
of the United States, whether agricul- 
turists or manufacturers of anything that 
compete with the following articles: 

Wool, grain, cattle, cotton, pork— all 
will be profoundly and injuriously affect- 
ed, if the party succeeds In Its objects. 
The Germans have found that to keep 
the army in its best condition It must be 
recruited from the country, not from the 
cities, which do not Include as good ma- 
terial. But the low price of grains and 
other farm products are driving the 
countrymen Into the cities and the move- 
ment Is accelerated by the action of many 
nobles In seizing communal lands and 
turning farms Into plantations and game 

The great military authorities have 
now to come to realize that the country 
must be made attractive and that the 
immigration into the cities must be 
stopped, wherefore the agrarians have 
gathered great strength in the landtags, 
although the bill of Kanltz did not pass, 
and they were not discouraged and pro- 
posed to renew the attack this winter 
and make it lively for the government. 

The consul general enumerates some 
Important measures which the agrarians 
have forced through, and says they ex- 
pect a large increase of strength through 
the surrender of the Catholic center 
party, when they hope to run things for 
themselves. They are even prepared to 
attack industrial and commercial Ger- 
many, and will demand the abrogation 
of favored nation treaties, and legisla- 
tion to paralyze the middle man on the 
farms, by stopping outside competition. 
They are willing to sacrifice industries 
built up under these treaties in order 
to keep the young men in the countrv. 
An agrarian member of the landtag, 
when asked: "But suppose the king of 
Prussia refuses his consent to this 
scheme," replied: "Then the Prussian 
house of representatives will refuse to 
vote the king of Prussia his supplies." 
This Is quoted to show the bitterness of 
the land owning class In Prussia. Neither 
the present duties on grain or the pre- 
mium on sugar begin to satisfy the de- 
mands of this p.>werful party. 

The consul general predicts that the 
Kanitz protectionists bill will not pass 
this winter, but Its object is to frighten 
the government into further concessions. 
In conclusion, he says: America must 
look for a strong effort on the part of all 
the conservative, provincial and reaction- 
ary elements of North Germany to keep 
out American products. As to retalia- 
tion for .«uch efforts, if my opinion were 
asked I should say: "Do not retaliate." 
being convinced that such measures as 
the agrarians contemplate will work their 
own revenge and do more harm to the 
contrivers of them than to the United 


Great Britain Has Paid No At- 
tention to It. 

New York, Oct. 25. — A special to the 
Herald from Washington says: Ad- 
ditional particulars have just been as- 
certained concerning the contents of 
Secretary Olney's note to Great Brit- 
ain on the Venezuelan matter. It is 
a communication of about 8000 words, 
pointing out the appllabllity of the 
Monroe doctrine to the boundary dis- 
pute in Guiana and declaring the prin- 
ciple, which Is the vital part of the 
note and the great principle for which 
the L'nlted States is now contending; 
namely, that no European power shall 
enlarge its territorial dominions on the 
American continent by means of force. 

Ten or eleven weeks have now elapsed 
since this important communication was 
placed in the hands of the British gov- 
ernment and no other response has been 
received than a formal acknowledge- 
ment thereof. The officials would very 
much like to have a reply before con- 
gress convenes, but they are by no 
means sanguine that their wish will be 
complied with. In any case the prob- 
abilities are that the president will of- 
ficially make known the contents of 
Secretary Olney's note In his annual 
message. .

Tlniea dispatch from Hong Kong an- 
nouncing that Russia had obtained the

and conatruot railroads on the Llao Tung 
peninsula have caused intense excite-

those having commercial relations with 
the far 

These most Important statements are 
looked upon generally as being a sud- 
"^" '"^opening In an unexpected quarter 
of the far Eastern question in its widest 
sense. The Shanghai dispatch added 
that the Japanese fleet In Forinosan 
waters had been recalled that several 
British war ships had been ordered to 
Corea, and that preparations for a 
struggle were visible on all sides. 

The Hong Kong cal)le mes.sage to the 
Times<l that paper to remark edi- 
torially today: "Russia cannot possibly 
Imagine that the great powers will view 
with indifference such a destruction of 
the balance of power which Is 
unparalleled In Its audacity. China's 
option to purchase the railways Is a jest 
almost too cynical to find a place in any 
serious diplomatic transaction. Under 
the indicated conditions Manchuria 
would practically become a Rus.slan pro- 
vince, while Pt^tin would be within 
Russia's grip," 

It Is admitted here that the situation 
presented Is so grave that should the 
news prove true, it would make war in 
which several nations will take part 
more than probable. It should be added 
that there Is every reason to believe that 
the story from Hong Kong Is authentic, 
and all .sources of Information agree that 
the powers interested in the far East 
will find themselves confronted by a con- 
dition of which cannot be 

The afternoon papers of this city all 
publish long articles agreeing that Brit- 
ish Intervention In the far East Is neces- 
sary. The St. James' Gazette says: 
"Even war with Russia would be less 
disastrous than to allow her. without a 
blow, to get such a grip upon China. 
She could throttle all the other powers 
and choke off their commerce. Unles.s 
Russia and China give the necessary as- 
surances, it Is a case for an ultimatum 
and perhaps the most serious step ever 
diplomacy has had since the Crimean 

The impre.s.<?ion is general In the official 
world, and it is re-echoed by the press 
that neither America nor Germany can 
allow the Pacific to become "a Franco- 
Russian lake," as the Globe puts It, and 
It is generally thought that the diplomats 
will be sufficiently strong to combine to i 
resist Russian aggression. 

The Pall Mall Gazette sums up the 
startling news from the far East with 
this statement: "Russia has annexed 
China," and in the course of a long 
article adds, "If this truly Is the stand, 
roll up the map of Asia." In conclusion, 
the Pall Mall Gazette urges the reoccu- 
patlon of Port Hamilton by the British, 
and the immediate stirring of the Brrt- 
ish fleet in Chinese waters, "lest Japan 
lose her fleet at the first blow." Since 
this Important news has been received 
great activity has been displayed in the 
government offices here, particularly at 
the foreign office. 

At the different clubs "the war scare" 
in the is generally discussed, the 
grave situation of affairs In Venezuela 
having almost completely dropped out 
of recollection in the alarm of the mo- 
ment. Nobody seems to doubt the report 
that by the recently agreed upon 
Chlna treaty Russia has obtained rights 
to which the most favored nation clause 
Is not applicable, which may cause a 
great war. The correspondent of the 
Times at Hong Kong who sent the sen- 
sational news is described by his news- 
paper as being in "close relations with 
men who are able to penetrate beneath 
the surface of things,' and it is there- 
fore concluded that, the news which has 
been .sent cannot be disregarded. Na- 
turally the public mind will be In a state

Lieut.-Gov. Millard, of Cali- 
fornia, Is Dead. 

Los Angeles, Oct. 25. — Lieutenant 
Governor Spencer Millard died at 1:55 
last night, after an Illness that has ex- 
tended over nine months. Spencer Gor- 
don Millard was born in Ionia county, 
Michigan, in 1846. He graduated from 

Hillsdale college in 1877 and became 
principal of the Carson City, Mich., 
graded school. In the meantime he 
studied law, and In 1882 he became part- 
ner of William O. Webster, an attorney 
at Ionia City. In 1887 he came to Cali- 
fornia, settling in Los A^igeles and prac- 
ticing law. 

He took very little part in politics up 
to the time of his nomination In 1894, 
but was noted as a brilliant orator, 
and was extremely popular In the South- 
ern part of the state. After his nomin- 
ation on the Republican ticket, he made 
a vigorous canvass of the state. He 
spoke sixty consecutive nights and cov- 
ered the entire state. When his elec- 
tion was announced he was In good 
health, but just before the a.ssembllng 
of the legislature in January, he was 
attacked by the grip which developed 
Into pneumonia. He was unable to at- 
tend the legislature and as he could not 
shake off the disease here, he visited 
his father last June in Michigan. 

The change did him no good, and In 
September he returned to California, 
spending the time until last Sunday on 
the mountains. It was seen his 
was hopeless, and on Sunday he was 
taken to Los Angeles In a special ca.r. 
Mr. Millard was married to Miss Ida 
Hall, of Ionia, and leaves two children. 

San Francisco, Oct. 25. — John W. Mac-

who was accidentally killed near Paris. 
Mrs. Mackay will accompany the remains

How the Proctorknott People 

Propose To Construct 

a Water System. 

Will Get the Water At Rocky 

Run, Three Miles 


Rev. Mr. Helming Will Be- 
come Pastor of the Con- 
gregational Church. 

A movement has been started at 
Proctorknott to build a water system for 
the village. It is proposed to go back in 
;i northwesterly direction about three 
miles, to what is known as Rocky Run. 
ami there throw a dam acrosss the 
stream, put in a pumping station and 
pump water into a reservoir to be built 
on a high mound in section 16. which is 
about seventy-five feet above the 
village, and it is claimed will give suf- 
ficient pressure. President Gallagher 
has appointed a committee to look over 
the ground and Investigate the feasibility 
of the scheme. It Is expected that the 
plant will be built by the village and the 
Missabe> railway In conjunction. The 
committee Is made up as follows: H. R. 
Patterson. J. L. Gallagher, A. L. Braln- 
ard. John Mcintosh. John Gulbrandson.

Rev. Mr. Helming, who has supplied 
the pulpit at the Congregational church 
for i^eveial weeks past, has been given 
a unanimous call to the pastorate of the 
church. A congregational meeting was 
held last evening and a resolution passed 
appointing a committee to wait on Rev. 
Mr. Helming and inform him that he was 
the unanimous choice of the people. It 
Is understood that the call will be ac- 
cepted and Mr. Helming be Installed as 
pastor at once. The members of the 
church are congratulating themselves 
that they have secured a young man of 
so much ability and promise. During his 
prol)atlonary period he has displayed 
adaptability to the work in hand, and 
proven that he will make a popular

to an alarm. The difficulty has been 
remedied since, and the boys proved this
